It the schools right to say we WONT let your child come in and give chicken pox to the other children.

If everyone else is vaccinated and vaccinations are so effective, how could the other children catch chicken pox?

It just sounded like you didn't know what to do from reading your first post. Not that you were trying to make everyone aware. Anyway, you are definitely doing the right thing by not jumping on the bandwagon with vaccinations. At least an exemption gives you the right to choose what you want to do when you want to do it. Again, sorry about my tone of voice.:)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


Thanks. I knew what to do when I filled out the exemption form. I just found it funny that they are trying to disregard it or whatever they are doing. I am also not sure why it is only an issue with my son. My youngest hasn't been vaccinated and she has never had chicken pox. He is 12, she is 10.

Have the pediatrician draw a blood test to prove he is immune.

Accesa Varicella Titer Test
This test measures your Varicella IgG antibody titer level.

If you have to pay out of pocket for that titer level test however it will cost you 90 bucks.

Re: my son gets kicked out of school May 1st, for not having chicken pox vaccine
I couldn't care less what they do, but my children do not receive any vaccinations, though they certainly did in the past. I am now a conscientious objector, which is completely legal in Canada.

Now as for the past, my first son had an unheard of reaction in the province of BC to one of his shots as a baby, one that was not known to give a reaction. He'd always gotten extremely ill and they probably caused health problems for him.

He was covered by raised quarter sized hives all over, and when I took him to the hospital, they sent me home saying, it would go away now it was peaking. The next day, when he first woke, the quarter sized hives had joined into a raised sculpted abstract hive, like one huge abstract hive all over his body.

They then treated him with anti histimine shot and meds.

The doctor refused to encourage me after that to even innoculate the children.

The last one was playing sit up games at 2 months and was normal in every way, but after his first (and for all of them, the very last shot any of them ever received) After that, he couldn't sit up, he had physical apraxia, he sat up around the time most crawl, he crawled after a year, when all of the children had already walked, they wer 11 months, (I have 5 boys) and then walked at 14 months, and needed mouth and tongue excercises and speech therapy.

When I asked the doctor if it was the shot, she said, she didn't know and would not advise me to ever allow another one.

Thanks, everyone. Here is the actual email from the school, this doesn't say which vaccine, but the letter they sent does:

Attention Parents/Guardians:
This is an important message from the CDSD. You are receiving this message because your student is deficient in one or more immunizations.

Beginning May 1, 2012, your student will be prohibited from attending school unless their immunizations are up to date.

To assist parents/guardians in meeting this deadline, the Department of Health is offering a free immunization clinic during the week of April 9th. Students need to register by tomorrow, March 30, 2012. Please call 1-877-724-3258 or visit www.padohclinicappt.com.

I'm pretty sure this is only for students whose parents did not claim an exemption but are just behind on the vaccinations. Your son should be fine!

I stopped vaccinating my son just before his 3 rd birthday.
Crazy mofos at the Clinic told me he would be receiving 5 separate injections at the same appointment. Fuck that. I don't care how they try and spin it, that cannot be good - the sort of assault that presents to a child's immune system is mind boggling.

Who are you to tell me that my child have to take that risk so another child can enjoy herd immunity? Furthermore, my children have a right to an intact immune system and not be subjected to endless vaccinations so that Merck and Eli-Lily CEOs can buy more yachts.

Shame on you for wishing to infringe upon my children's rights to not be subjected to real and documented risks, both known and unknown, via vaccines. Perhaps if you feel our children should be guinea pigs for countless vaccines that you and I never even took, YOU should homeschool your kid, and also be sure to get YOURSELF fully vaccinated with the 36 doses today's children recieve. Otherwise, YOU could be putting at risk others by your logic!!!

^^^^^This kind of logic is insane. How you get so twisted to believe that since you have your children vaccinated the children who are not must be kept away.

First you risk your child's health and life to have them vaccinated, then you seek to impose restrictions on healthy kids.

The only reasonable response is to keep kids who are contagious out of school. (when they are actively sick-all schools have this rule in place anyway)

But--you all realize that a freshly vaccinated child can pass the disease they are vaccinated on to others--this happens with the flu shot, and some others.

So, really parents who choose to not vaccinate should demand that vaccinated children stay home for a week after their shots!

The worst thing about this is many children die, and are harmed for life by drug companies trying to make a bigger and bigger profit.

I can't imagine how the people who run these companies who know what their products are capable of doing sleep at night.

He came on “well visits” and watched as we got vaccine after vaccine, on schedule of course! That’s what good parents do, right? He has changed hundreds of exploding, toxic yellow poop diapers. He’s cleaned up projectile vomit more times than I can count, including the time Big Son puked in the pool. He applied salve to the random sores that developed on Big Son’s little body. He witnessed many petit mal seizures and sat with me in the Doctor’s office as this idiot told us it was nothing, that our child was just over stimulated. He stressed out along side me when the words weren’t coming like they should. His children were sick and no one listened. He has two vaccine injured children. He is still their Dad, regardless of our marital status...."

Re: my son gets kicked out of school May 1st, for not having chicken pox vaccine
Lets assume you have a kid who hasnt been vaccinated, is oh age 12 at school and a kid with chickenpox comes in and spreads the virus all over the place.

You kids picks it up, carries it in hand, or on some object back home to you and your new born baby. He may not present with symptoms, but he is a carrier.

He touches that baby - bang, your baby is now on the road to potential death.

Worse, you take him to the store right after school and he touches a grocery cart that you ain't using. However the next person i is a mother with a bouncing baby boy of just one month old. She loveingly places the child and carrier in the cart, puts her hand on the handle of the cart, baby fusses, she reaches out and loving strokes his cheek to calm him.

BANG - he is infected.

Ever see an infant with chicken pox? [link to www.google.com]

An infant 2 months or younger has a very weak immune system that is still developing. Up to 9 months after birth minor things like colds and flu can be a death sentence. Major things like measles, mumps, chickenpox can be a death sentence up to two years old.

Its not so much the other kids at school they worry about, its all of the unknown people that those kids come in contact with, such as infant siblings.

If you feel your children are still vulnerable even after vaccination then maybe you shouldn't let them out in public. There are a lot of people carrying all sorts of viruses outside of school that they could catch. You can't keep them in a bubble. And they would be better off getting chicken pox then getting it later on. I believe these viruses will find their way around vaccines anyway and then the public will really have a monster on their hands. Viruses adapt and mutate and you can't outsmart them. Better to just build up your child's immune system and let them catch some childhood illnesses.

Re: my son gets kicked out of school May 1st, for not having chicken pox vaccine
It the schools right to say we WONT let your child come in and give chicken pox to the other children.

^THIS^ You have your right as a parent not to vaccinate, but you have NO right to potentially expose the rest of the children at school to any disease. Vaccines are not 100% effective, so even vaccinated children could be susceptible. If you don't want to vaccinate, that's your decision, but don't expect the public schools to change the rules for you. If you feel so strongly about it, homeschool.

First of all, you clearly do not understand how the immune system and vaccines work. The vast majority of credible medical research supports vaccines whether you choose to accept it or not.

Second, I could use your same argument and say that you and all the other non-vaxers should keep your potentially disease-infected kids out of public, but that would sound just as ridiculous as your argument.
The fact is there has to be a compromise. Vaccines are not compulsory, but they are in order for your children to attend public school. This way you rights to withold vaccinations are upheld, and my rights to protect my children via vaccination, and maintain that protection via the herd immunity that should be guranteed in public schools, are also upheld. It is the only fair solution.
