How many homeschool because immunization laws prevent your child from attending school? Has your child suffered vaccine injury?

No one. It's extremely important to get the child vaccinated. Think about how many illness and diseases are not existing anymore because of vaccines and medical advancement. It's totally silly to think that vaccines are bad. Get serious.

There are people who homeschool to avoid vaccinations, but this is not a good thing.

In New York last week, hundreds of parents attended a four-hour workshop called Homeschooling 101 in the ballroom of a hotel on Long Island, according to the WSJ. The event was hosted by the anti-vaccine group New York Alliance for Vaccine Rights and covered course requirements, instruction plans, extracurricular activity options, and potential financial resources for parents.

The vast majority of homeschoolers I know chose that route because of specific topics they did/did not want their child to learn, concerns about rigid classroom environments that don't suit their childrens' needs, poor quality local schools and too expensive private ones, etc.

Immunizations don't even make it in the top 10 reasons for homeschooling.

We do online public school because my daughter has mast cell activation syndrome, and it's easier to manage at home. She still gets vaccinations though. She gets hives and vomits from most vaccinations. Her doctor is aware that she'll have some sort of reaction, and we stay at the doctor's office for two hours after the vaccination so they can monitor her vital signs.

I get it, chill out....I merely asked a question. The "get serious" part was not very nice. I live in an area where alot of families do not immunize and in fact recently had a measles out break. I'm curious what all those parents are doing now that there is no longer an immunization exemption. For example, have they quit their jobs to stay home to homeschool their kids that formerly received the exemption? Or did they give in and immunize their children? What about kids that were vaccine injured in the past, but need to attend school because mom can't afford to stay home to homeschool. I'm not a part of the large group in my town that doesn't immunize and wonder how economically affected these families are now that they no longer receive the exemption and homeschool instead.

Completely false.

Correction: Only 4 states require proof of immunization to be filed directly with the school district for homeschooled children.

The rest are a mix of homeschooling choices, usually through a public/private umbrella or online school that may or may not require proof of immunization that may or may not be required to be filed with the school district.

This!

Some people can’t have vaccines, so it is important for every else to have them. I am not able to get the flu shot this year due to my allergies.

I have had chicken pox 3 times now, most recently two summers ago. If people were vaccinating their children, I probably would not have caught it.

This, my daughter was bored in school and had to do research on her own because she loved to learn. She is homeschooling her children and they are vaccinated.
