Vaccine Awareness & Education



I live on a military base and will be transferring to Wiesbaden, Germany in December. I've been told by my mom that I *have* to get my daughter immunized...please say it's not so. I am not sure yet but we were looking at following the Dr. Sears delayed schedule and then selectively vaxing from there.

If someone could tell me my legal rights in this situation, maybe point me toward some sites where I could read up on the *federal* laws as well as the German laws, and perhaps even information on traveling with an baby who has not been vax'd.

I need to be 100% prepared at her two month well baby (September 8th), because they are already asking about her immunizations and my response is "She's not getting any."

What kind of "religious" reasons? I am not aware of any mainstream religions that have any bias to vaccinating, and perhaps that's my own ignorance!

I'm not sure of all but Christian Scientists for sure...they oppose all medical intervention as it's against "god's will"

You don't have to have a religion that specifically prohibits vax. Religious reasons are personal; you can belong to just about any organised religion or none and have personal religious thoughts about not harming your child via vax.

paquerette is right.. they legally cant ask you what your religion is.. that's religious discrimination..
