I gave up on the education/teaching/explaining of the subject of immunizations long ago - I too learned it was not worth the time or effort and in the long run just left bad vibes on both our ends. I just give the facts of what is required of state of Texas, will provide the link to request the Exemption form and move on. I do find it funny that some of these parents come at me HOT right off the bat, I feel they want an argument or just expecting one, it's crazy. Sometimes I just come out and tell them - I really don't care what your beliefs, reasons for not getting vaccinated - all I care about is that my paperwork is in order - get me the form on time, completed correctly and I will leave you alone 🙂
Thankfully I work in a district that takes the immunization requirements seriously & my campus admin team back it up - we don't let folks complete registration, start school, pick up schedules etc etc etc until the immunization requirements are complete.
Good Luck to you - I live in Texas and I hope the "reason of Conscience" Exemption never changes - getting parents to get a medical exemption would be a huge annoyance.
