Thank you everybody for the congrats. I really appreciate it. We have two now and they are vaccine free. We know many people here who don't vaccinate their kids and our pediatrician is totally fine...he happens to be on an autism board that has looked into vaccines.
Ok, are you serious?!!! You have to have proof of vaccination in TN in order to homeschool your own children? Where can I find this documentation?
That's great you found a non-vax ped. They are too rare these days!
I think the unvaxed kids are going to have some super roles to change the future, when so many others are unhealthy, brain damaged, and infertile from vaccines. What a service we parents are blessed with...saving the future of humanity!
I was recently looking into the easiest and hardest states for homeschooling. Some states don't require anything, and some are require a lot.
Here's the TN homeschool requirements: http://www.state.tn.us/education/homeschool/requirements.shtml
Here is the TN Intent to Homeschool Form:http://www.state.tn.us/education/homeschool/doc/aahschlintent.pdf
"B. HEALTH RECORDS: Please attach documentation indicating that student(s) have received immunizations as requir ed
by T.C.A. 49001."
They do allow religious and medical exemption from vaccines, so you can get out of it that way with this form:
Model Form: Religious Exemption from Vaccinationshttp://tennessee.gov/education/schoolhealth/healthservices/doc/ReligiousExemptionFormED-5379.pdf
You don't have to really think about any of this homeschool reporting until your kids are 6. You may want to check out HSLDA then.
Enjoy your baby moon!
