We enrolled our 5 year old daughter in Kindergarden for the Fall. We live in Ohio, and the law states that we can submit a letter exempting her from immunizations for any of the common three reasons. I gave the filled out form to them, exempting her on philosophical and religious reasons - when we registered her.
It's been months, and I finally get this letter in the mail stating that Ohio Law mandates these immunizations, and they sent home a form with local clinics and told us to make her an appointment.
We follow homeopathy and have a homeopathic D.O. as our family doctor. I am livid that they are trying to bully us into getting her shots.
This is the PDF from Ohio's website. It looks like they can't deny her... but have included a loop hole that the school can discreetly deny her due to her posing a "threat" to other children.
I'm planning on getting another form from the doctors, signing that and going down to the school and handing it to them in person.
What do I do if they deny her? I cannot bring myself to get her immunized, and home schooling is not an option. Please help!
