She is now at Bryn Mawr a private school for girls and they too accepted the form without question. Sometimes all you have to do is ask the school. Many schools accept the exemption - it is a parental choice. And you arent putting anyone else child at risk - if they choose to inject toxins into their child then they should be so-called protected right?
Thank you!! Thats great! I really appreciate your help!

For the rest of you, I could never explain all the reasons why. It would be a book thicker than the bible. But I can say this, no parent has read as many studies or journal articles as the parents of unvaccinated children. I would venture to say that today's doctors don't read as much, as we read the whole study, not just the synopsis.

All of the parents of the children my child plays with are aware of my decision.

I realize that there is a fear that unvaccinated are putting vaccinated children at a higher risk. This may be true, or it may not be true. I'm not an epidemiologist, so I cannot say either way.

Let's say your child is on the playground with another kid. They seem to be getting along, until your child sets down his very favorite toy for a second to play with something else. Meanwhile, the other child picks it up. Harmless, lets see how it turns out. Your child begins to scream and grabs the toy back, prompting the other child to hit yours. If we are honest with ourselves, our gut reaction (perhaps not the one we act on, but the first instinct) is to be angry with the other child and protect ours.

So, maybe at the root of it, we all care about the safety of our own kids more than others. Must be a human flaw.
