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.
