Ds is starting preschool in August, so right now I'm in the middle of trying to get him registered but the school and the dr's office both noticed an issue with his shot record. He received his 4th Dtap shot 3 months earlier than what he should have according to what the state of Hawaii shot schedule says. We lived in Las Vegas at the time so I'm assuming their shot schedule is different. I've asked the nurse and ma at the pediatrician office if 3 months really makes a difference and they both said yes but couldn't tell me why and that they wont let him in school unless he retakes the shot. I went to the school nurse and asked her the same thing and once again got the same answer but also couldn't tell me why, and the only way around it was to claim religious reasons. If I were to do that than his whole shot record wouldn't matter, but if there were to be an outbreak of anything at the school he wouldn't be allowed to attend.
Honestly, I find it incredibly ridiculous that 3 months makes a difference and I REALLY don't want to have to give him an extra shot that he's already had. Should I just claim the religious reasons and take the risk that nothing will break out? My other question is, if I claim religious reasons in Hawaii and we move to back to Las Vegas, where his shot schedule is on time, would I have any trouble with the new school because of it?
Dbf thinks I should have him get the shot and just be done with it, but I'm really bothered by it! Especially since I haven't any got any answers other than the stupid schedule says so. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
