Registering and vax exemption question SailorJerry 2 kids; California 17304 posts

Tomorrow I will go and register my daughter for kinder. Am I supposed to provide my own vax exemption form or will they have their own that I sign? also is there something I should avoid saying, like do I straight up tell them it is against our beliefs, do I say its religious? In my experience, when we had to tell our pedi they luckily didnt really ask us for a reason they had me sign a form that I edited and crosses out things I wasnt comfortable with. I just want to prepare myself for the whole process, and Im dreading having to justify or explain my reasonings for decisions. What was your experience like? Tia. We are in southern california.

I would call them and ask, or just ask in person tomorrow morning. You shouldn't have to justify anything, just say it's against your beliefs and leave it at that.

Ill probably ask tomorrow before I head in. I know legally they shouldnt ask you or pester you but usually you get the nosey secretaries or meddling receptionist giving you grief about it. Its just very irritating, it shocks me how much people dont mind their own business or feel the need to add their unecessary opinions.

Remember that legally, they cannot question your religion because of religious freedom!

I am not quite sure how it works in California, but here the nurses office usually has an exemption form in office. Some states are making you right a fucking essay on your beliefs and why you oppose vaccines, then they have a committee that "reviews" it and decides if they will accept your exemption :? Unfortunately more states are trying to make changes like this as well. This will have links for your state http://www.nvic.org/
