All about who you know that can help you.
I don't raise a big fuss and put myself out there. All the ones who do that will be the ones who end up running, hiding and getting rounded up.
That is if things go south.
Sometimes that gets some, like whitewave, upset that I don't jump up and down throwing a fit. I choose to spend that energy finding people who can give me specific information.
Like I know on Ft. Riley that they only have enough MP's to put 7 cars and 4 bikes on the road at a time. I know the general area of where the cars are at and where the bikes are at.
I know that in a few months Ft.Riley will be stopping people LEAVING post at the gates to check for random DUI's on Friday and Saturdays.
My energy is well spent.
If and when H1N1 vaccine becomes available, school-age children may be a priority population to get the vaccine. This means that children may be offered vaccinations at school. Your school is working with the Medina County Health Department to discuss the best way to administer the vaccine, process paperwork, and ensure the safety of your children.

This may come as a surprise to a few people but schools lie. When the friendly neighborhood policeman came to the school for fingerprinting day, forms had been passed out, consents and refusals obtained, etc.
I had signed the refusal form, called the teacher, pasted a large sticky freezer label over my son's shirt that said "NO FINGERPRINTING!" and they still fingerprinted him! I was livid! When I called to complain, they said, "Sorry, we didn't know". Nothing you can do about it after the fact.
The people in charge of making sure we're all shot full of poisons are not playing by the same rule book that the rest of us are.
North Carolina Immunisation Exemptions
North Carolina law provides for two types of exemptions from required immunizations. They are medical and religious.
G.S.130A-156. Medical exemption.
The Commission for Health Services shall adopt by rule medical contraindications to immunizations required by G.S. 130A-152. If a physician licensed to practice medicine in this State certifies that a required immunization is or may be detrimental to a person's health due to the presence of one of the contraindications adopted by the Commission, the person is not required to receive the specified immunization as long as the contraindication persists. The State Health Director may, upon request by a physician licensed to practice medicine in this State, grant a medical exemption to a required immunization for a contraindication not on the list adopted by the Commission.
(1957, c. 1357, s. 1; 1959, c. 177; 1965, c. 652; 1971, c. 191; 1979, c. 56, s. 1; 1983, c. 891, s. 2; 1987, c. 782, s. 18; 1989, c. 122; 1999-110, s. 6.)
G.S.130A-157. Religious exemption
If the bona fide religious beliefs of an adult or the parent, guardian or person in loco parentis of a child are contrary to the immunization requirements contained in this Part, the adult or the child shall be exempt from the requirements. Upon submission of a written statement of the bona fide religious beliefs and opposition to the immunization requirements, the person may attend the college, university, school or facility without presenting a certificate of immunization.
(1957, c. 1357, s. 1; 1959, c. 177; 1965, c. 652; 1971, c. 191; 1979, c. 56, s. 1; 1983, c. 891, s. 2; 1985, c. 692, s. 2.)
10A NCAC 41A .0403 Non-Religious Personal Belief No Exemption
Except as provided in G.S. 130A-156 and G.S. 130A-157, and 10A NCAC 41A .0404 and .0405, no child shall be exempt from the requirements of 10A NCAC 41 .0401; there is no exception to these requirements for the case of a personal belief or philosophy of a parent or guardian not founded upon a religious belief
(History Note: Authority G.S. 130A-152(c); Eff. February 1, 1976; Readopted Eff. December 5, 1977; Amended Eff. October 1, 1984; July 1, 1979.)
Medical exemptions can only be requested by a physician licensed to practice medicine in North Carolina. If a physician determines the need to request a medical exemption from a required immunization for a patient and needs assistance, they should contact the North Carolina Immunization Branch at (919) 707-5550.
* Medical Exemption Statement (DHHS 3987)
There is no form for requesting religious exemptions in North Carolina. To claim a religious exemption, the parent or person requesting the exemption must write a statement of their religious objection to immunization, including the name and date of birth of the person for whom the exemption is being requested. This statement would then be provided to schools, child care programs, camps, etc. in place of an immunization record. If a family is requesting a religious exemption for more than one child, a separate statement should be prepared for each child. Statements of religious objection to immunization do not need to be notarized or prepared by an attorney. They do not need to be submitted to the state for review or approval.
