How to get religious exception?

I went to my local health department and they said "We don't do that here" and "Maybe you can go and get a noterized letter and see if your school will accept it".... so where do I go from here? I'm kinda at a loss at what exactly to do and I need this exception for my son's daycare by the end of the day today...

    Hmmm. Check, and look up your state law. I live in TN right now, and it's just a form you sign. But we're moving to Louisiana in a couple of weeks, and I will have to write a letter and submit it (I think that's how it works, anyway). See what the law says, and the website should have a pdf if it's a form.

    For my dd to start kindergarten we need a religious exemption. I talked to the school nurse about it and she told me what I needed to do and the NY state website to see what I HAD to have...basically I had to write my own. They won't accept the forms off line! I have to tell them why I want the exemption, where it applies to my religion and if I'm against all vaccines. It's kind of tough!! I'm a religious person, but to keep it 100% religious is very hard for me!! Hope you figure out what you have to do and it works out!!!

    I'm fairly certain every state has a religious exemption.  What state do you live in?  Do a google search for vaccine waivers for your state.
