HGrandma asks:

Does GA allow children into kindergarten without immunizations?

My son is against vaccinations for his daughters. The older one is 5 years old now and is staying with me while he is deployed. We do not know when he will return.

What the Expert Says:

All states have laws regarding school entry.  Check to see if GA has a "philosophical Exemption" to immunizations. If not, she will not be admitted.  It is regrettable that your son has made such a decision that ultimately puts you and her mates at risk for preventable diseases. Check with your school nurse for the answer.
