    Awesome! I have a handful who aren't- a couple pleading religious reasons

    Wow! It's like Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster... You hear rumors of it's existence, but no one can quite prove it.

    Yay! Such a relief!

    We were at 100% (not counting my two exemption families) until we got several new students from Mexico and out of state. Now I'm sending letters again!

    My system technically says there's one student who is out of compliance, but he's a special case because he got the MMR 5 days a bit too early, and the computer being sensitive, thinks he's out of compliance, when he's not. My bosses know this and I put a note on his profile, so it's good.

    Double check the requirement - My CDC Pink book says four days early is fine. Specifically "Doses administered five days or earlier than the minimum interval or age should not be counted as valid doses."

    It would be worth a call to the Texas Immunization program's consulting nurse.

    Good work. We can truly appreciate what an accomplishment this is.

    I did, and they said it was fine.

    Congratulations! It is such a relief when that happens. Of course, then you get a new student....

    I am a member of a natural parenting group on facebook - I have enjoyed learning green cleaning tips and stuff, but the anti-vaxxers make me crazy. There are always a couple people on there trying to figure out ways to get a 'religious exemption' for their kids, when it's really clear they just believe loony toons crap about vaccines being a big pharma cover-up and autism and thimerosal blah blah blah. I spend more time than I should trying to educate. My hat is off to you for the 100% compliance!!

    Same! And for the first time this year I don't have any expiring within 30 days either. It's a rare occurrence for sure.

    99+% here, we have many kids on the catch up schedule because they are coming from Mexico and South and Central America so I've got a lot that come 'due' every month. I'm proud to say none of my parents have filed for exemptions of any kind.. but then, these parents are from countries where these diseases are prevalent, so they aren't afraid of a little vaccine, when they've seen the disease up close and personal.
