Yesterday, I brought all of Nate’s registration paperwork to his new school. To my surprise, they put up absolutely no fuss about his not having any immunizations after 18 months. I had brought a letter stating the state law that he can’t be denied entrance into the school, but I didn’t have to bring it out; I just signed their exemption request. Woo hoo! He starts this Friday, May 2, the day after his third birthday.
Here are some helpful links I used in the past few weeks:
- CA immunization exemption information - information about current state statutes, letters, and forms. There is a lot of great stuff here, including newborn/Vitamin K exemptions, etc.
- Sample letter – this is the letter I brought with me to the school but didn’t have to use.
- CA school exemptions information sheet – the CA School Immunization Law lays out pretty clearly that your child can be exempted.
- How to legally avoid unwanted vaccinations by Dr. Mercola – balanced, good information, including exemptions in the military.
