We welcome curiosity and are so glad you’re here. Below are a few of our most frequently asked questions.
Do you have a list of recommended pediatricians if I do not want to vaccinate my child?
Unfortunately, Freedom Keepers United does not provide services to locate pediatricians. This is a Chapter by Chapter discretion, by contacting your state/country’s chapter, they may be able to provide you with resources that can help.
Do you have any resources for homeschooling?
Laws within each state vary in regards to homeschooling. A great resource to start understanding homeschooling laws in your state is the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. We also suggest joining homeschool groups within your state or local counties that can be found on places like Facebook, Meetup, and local homeschool enrichment programs.
How can I remove my immunization records from my state's immunization registry or information system?
Search for your state’s “immunization registry.” Once located, first check to see if your information is in their system. If it is, search the website for “forms.” States will either have the option to remove/withdraw your records, or to lock your records from being shared. Each state will vary in difficulty to find the needed information. If you are unable to find withdrawal forms or intent to lock forms, check the FAQs. If you still cannot find it, contact the email and phone number provided. Lastly, if your information is not listed but you’d like to take additional precautions, you can call or schedule an appointment with your doctor or pediatrician to ask what your options are to ensure the safety of your records and/or if your information has already been shared. Please keep in mind oftentimes doctors’ offices have you fill out intake forms that may ask for your consent to the release of your immunization records.
What are our donations being used for?
Freedom Keepers United has one employee on staff being paid a stipend of $1000 a month. Money donated to FKU covers program costs such as: building Freedom Keeper communities throughout the nation and world that can be sustainable long term for individuals opting out of medical mandates; our legislation tracking team which requires legislation tracking software; campaign and petition management; our volunteer program and chapter program that requires project management and operations to help provide strategy, insight, and leadership to over 200 Chapter Leaders worldwide.
Is Freedom Keepers United a 501(c)3?
Currently, Freedom Keepers United is a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation. We are a nonprofit, but we are not yet tax exempt.
