Are You Feeling Pressure to Follow the “Required” Immunization Schedule?
With a new school year coming fast, along with all the vaccine paperwork and the “required” immunization schedule for kids, I wanted to pull some resources and information together for parents who are feeling anxious about the issue of vaccines. (If you are 100% pro-vaccine and are offended by others who question their safety, read no further–this isn't for you.)
At that post you'll also find out how we got past following the “required” immunization schedule, the waiver forms we used to skip the vaccines, how we talked to our doc about it, etc.
Hopefully using that waiver for your school will get you through no problem as it did for us, but there may be other circumstances (such as a health care job?) where you just can't get around it and have to get a vaccine. (Yep, right here in America…???) Have you seen these posts?
- Healthcare workers: how to refuse mandatory vaccines and not get fired.
- More posts on mandatory flu vaccinations.

So if you truly must vaccinate, the following information might help:
- Consider nutritional support ahead of time to encourage detoxification and a healthy immune response. VacciShield is a supplement designed to be taken for 14 days, beginning 7-10 days before vaccination.
- Click here to read my guest post at TheHealthyHomeEconomist.com on ways to protect your family with nutritional support and detox if you cannot get out of vaccination.
- And before you submit to any vaccine(s) you do not want, educate yourself on the exemption laws in your state. Sometimes school officials are uninformed or misrepresent their state's laws. This map of vaccine exemption laws by state is a good place to start.

I hope that list helps some of you facing this dilemma, share your stories in the comments if you were able to get out of a similar sticky situation.
