JoeFoxx asks:

Can a non-immunized child still attend public school in Nevada?

If a parent wishes to opt out of immunization for his or her child due to religious beliefs, can that child still attend public school.

What the Expert Says:

I would check with the state department of education in Nevada and your doctor.  In most states children cannot attend unimmunized unless there is a medical exemption or religious exemption.  In about 11 states there is also a philosophical exemption.  These are state laws and exist for the protection of children by herd immunity since not all children are well and have immunity.
