Exemptions are available in Tennessee for religious & medical reasons. Mississippi & Virginia are the only states where only the medical exemption applies.

Do not buy a car from Jim Keras Nissan. They lie to make deals and when you are told the deal you got, you end up losing thousands more. They are a rip off dealer

No! And If your too lazy to research and educate yourself on why they shouldn't, then your children will suffer.
One good place to start is www.drtenpenny.com
or google Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. Read some of the articles on her site, but don't stop there keep digging, if you want the truth.

but not all immunizations.. Unsafe immunizations may be given if not closely monitored..Remember the polio vaccine? I fear terrorist opportunities. Look how many we have in congress.

In 2004 the NIH firmly stated "we don't want to look at the population that got sick (Sutism spectrum disorders).

Dr. Bernadine Healy is the former head of the NIH.

That article is a load of bunk. It "suggests" this and "supposes" that and tries to hint and some loose indication of a link between vaccination and autism. It suggest that peer reviewed studies have shown a causation link between the two and then later goes on to say that no studies have been done because they are afraid of what they might find.

So which is it? Is there evidence of a link or not? The answer is there is not, and there is no credible link to suggest there is. The article sites the growing number of autism cases and then suggests that vaccinations "might" be at fault. Now that might sound pretty compelling to mom and pop America that don't actually HAVE a medical degree and think that what they here on FOX News or MSNBC is the truth. Have you folks ever considered that it might just as likely be some other factor causing a rise in autism such as environmental pollutants, diet, health risks taken by mothers during pregnancy, or a thousand other factors?! What makes you so sure it is vaccines? I mentioned this to a doctor I work with who teaches medicine, and has more degrees and experience that you can shake a stick at. He just sighed and shook his head. We discussed how people who are pretty uniformed and unqualified can believe the craziest stuff.

While you are "researching" the link between autism and vaccinations, you might also want to straighten your tin foil hat and look into Area 51, who shot President Kennedy, and whether or not the moon landings were faked.
