Thank you! We are moving from Calfornia to St. Thomas next month. Our son has Autism and his high functioning. Is there a waiver available to sign so he may start school in St. Thomas but not receive the vaccines he has not had? Again, thank you SO much!!!

Not sure why your child hasn't had scheduled vaccinations, but he should go ahead and have them done. Bring proof of those for the school. Have you checked out the services available for him here?

Call the curriculum center at 340 775-2250. School registration is handled from this office. They can give you the necessary information.

Not to my knowledge, and there shouldn't be. The autism-vaccination claim has been thoroughly debunked in the scientific community, and there is no increased risk associated with vaccination.

By not vaccinating your child however, you put his peers (and him) at drastically increased rates of easily preventable diseases. Some immunocompromised children cannot receive vaccinations and depend on you vaccinating your child so theirs does not die from an easily preventable disease.

Please, forget all the hype, vaccinate your child.

you could also call a local pediatrician, i think there are forms that they can give you stating that you choose not to vaccinate your child. something like that any how. not sure who the pediatricians are though.

http://www.casewatch.org/foreign/wakefield/sanction.shtml
This website details the official proceedings against the man responsible for all of this...he has been struck off the medical registry in the UK - he can no longer practice medicine. He was bribed by lawyers suing the vaccine companies and developed a competing vaccine that would have made him a very rich man if the vaccines had been banned!

The entire autism-vaccination scare story was based on faked research by one man...there is absolutely NO evidence that there is a problem with vaccinating children. This is not a case of bad old "big" medicine...this is a case of one very stupid and callous man putting 1000's of children in deadly danger of dying from some utterly preventable illnesses when their parents did not have them vaccinated.
The following is a quote from a paper published by the US National Autism Society:

"The vaccine controversy has engulfed rational dialog about the etiology of autism in ways that many responsible scientists do not believe serves the field best."

There are many many more likely contenders for the culprit - heredity, environmental poisons...but NOT vaccines.

However there is a lot of very real and very horrific evidence on death and disabilities due to preventable childhood diseases.
Please rethink your position, look at the facts from the UK that started all the "vaccine" nonsense.

Wakefield has been found guilty of acting unethically during the time he conducted the famous, and now retracted, 1998 case report of 12 children that questioned if a childhood vaccine caused a new form of autism.

Please reconsider and have your child vaccinated.

Geez, we are so welcoming on this board. Newbies can't ask questions without being blasted.

informed, not blasted. The main thing about living in the VI is you gotta "keep it real" so to speak. Small communities, small space, not much room for BS there.

Thank you SO much. I am not looking for a debate, but I appreciate everyone's opinions. My girls are vaccinated. My son can't handle them. I appreciate that email to contact the woman who also walks in my shoes.
Glad Maria changed paths. Enjoy your Sunday. 🙂

I tried to email her, but it came back as a non working email. If you happen to know of another way for me to make contact with her I would appreciate it beyond words.

Sincerely,
Allison Sutfin

Allison: If you believe that your son's autism is related to vaccination, you will find many people in the Virgin Islands who share this belief.

You will also find many people who believe the sun goes around the earth, alchemy is real, and homeopathy will cure anything, but that doesn't make it so.

Don: I wasn't commenting, just noting that there is a large number of people who have these beliefs.

Fair enough, as someone who works in the scientific field seeing the ad populum fallacy is particularly annoying, sorry I misinterpreted your post 🙂
