Hi there,

I'm Lisa the co-host of the June 2010 PR, but I do lurk on this board quite a bit. We started out vaxing our older kids and even our 18 month old, but changed that when she was 9 months for a variety of reasons. So far, we haven't had a problem with Day Care, but a recent email about updating vaccination records has me thinking that we will have a bit of a disagreement on our hands. I am planning on printing out a letter stating religious exemption because that is what looks like it works here in Oregon. My concern is that the day care director will challenge the letter because there are some immunizations for my daughter in the state system that she uses to check for up to date vaccinations. Can I religiously exempt out of some but not others? Can I change my mind in the middle of things and just start not vaxing at 9 month?

Anyone out there with any experience on this?

She is at a fairly smaller home style day care, but they follow most of the same rules that an larger center would. Keeping her home isn't an option because both DH and I work full time and have to both work full time to keep a roof over everyone's heads. A nanny isn't an option because it's just too expensive and won't work into our budget so we have to make day care work.


To the Amazing Kelly: Thank you once again!! Amazing only begins to cover it.

I think a private day care can make any rules, not the same as public school. My DD is at a "hippy-er" type place, super crunchy, so they were ok with a written letter to exempt her.

YOu might consider contacting the state to see if you can get her information removed from the system...someone else on here did that once. ???

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
