What are the requirements in your area for getting a vaccine exemption for school?  Have you had any problems with your school district with your decision not to vaccinate?

We have to request a form from the State, fill it out and have it notarized every two year and give it to the school.  I have had no issue with either the daycare or the school with the exemption forms and nothing has been said about our decision either way.  I do know when I signed my middle one up for kindergarten last year that there had to have been some others using the form as when we got to the nurse's table she said something about making a copy of it "like the previous ones".  So I assumed others that day during the registration process had brought the forms in also.
