• Philadelphia School Officials to Start Home Visits of Children not Vaccinated

    School officials in Philadelphia are reportedly prepared to start doing home visits for students that have not provided medical records showing that they are up-to-date on their vaccines. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports: "Over the summer, parents of Philadelphia students got phone calls, text messages, and letters reminding them to have their children vaccinated. By Monday’s deadline’s for immunizations, the district may start planning home visits to families that have not provided medical records or sought exemptions. District officials on Thursday said they want to minimize the number of students who are excluded from attending school for vaccine-related reasons. This year, students were given 60 days to provide their records or obtain a religious, medical or philosophical exemption."

    Home visits? What legal authority do they have to do that

    Last I heard we are under ZERO OBLIGATION to open the door to police officers or allow them entry into our homes without a search warrant. I would expect that to hold true with any civil servant, representtive or stranger from any walk of life. Just don't open the door, don't engage.

    If you are homeschooling just file an exemption and avoid a home visit. Sounds easy enough to me. Thirty-five years ago, when we home schooled with the state we had to have a vaccine exemption on file for each child. When some of the children opted to go to school on occasion we turned in an exemption at the office of each school. I thought that was pretty much standard practice in each state.
