Exemption Letters & Forms...
For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed, in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.
Vitamin K Injection...
The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
"WARNING - INTRAVENOUS USE Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of AquaMEPHYTON® (Phytonadione)."Merck Vitamin K Package Insert - Aquamephyton PI | Scribd
The package insert should be printed out and used along with the birth plan letter, and your exemption letter or AFFIDAVIT. This shows the hospital or birthing center that you are aware of the risks of Vitamin K injection, and that they should be too.
Alternatives to Vitamin K Prophylaxis...
Although oral vitamin K is not licensed for use as a drug by the FDA, drops for oral administration are available. Typically, one drop contains 2 mg. of vitamin K. Contact a midwife in your area, or a birthing supply company (such as birthwithlove.com), or Scientific Botanicals (206 527-5521) where your health care provider can order liquid vitamin K directly.
Here's another safe alternative that your chiropractor or naturopath can order for you. Or order directly from Amazon.com
Biotics Research, Bio-K Mulsion - 1 fl oz
A good organic whole food diet along with lots of leafy green vegetables is all that is necessary to prevent vitamin K deficiency in newborns.
Sample Vaccine Letters
Most states now require the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns. Many parents are also cornered by emergency room personnel during accident visits. Hospitals nationally are under pressure to utilize every opportunity to score a "hit." If your pediatrician understands your views, get him involved with the hospital. As a last resort, protect your right to receive quality care in the following manner. (Usually, you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form):
"I certify that the (Name of Vaccine)________ vaccine being administered to (Name of Child)_________ is free from all known and yet unknown zoonotic or human viruses or viral fragments and will not cause acute or chronic illness in the recipient due to viral contamination or as a reaction to the components of this vaccine. (Signature of Physician and Date)_________."
If you do get a signature, hold on to the form.

Waivers - Take Care In Signing
If you take your new baby to an MD as opposed to a naturopath and/or chiropractor, please be aware of and careful of any forms you sign.
Our WARNING below is about signing (some) state approved and AAP created forms. See this letter from our director, Ingri Cassel, before you consider signing waiver forms.
A modified AAP form is posted here that you may wish to use with your doctor: AAPmodified.htm
AAPmodified.doc MSWord .DOC file | AAPmodified.pdf PDF file, best for printing.
Not all State employees are aware of the law and many exhibit the Hitler Complex. Take a firm stand. Some individuals have had difficulty getting the required forms. Such arrogance on the part of State employees should be reported to the Director of your state Department of Health.

“No chief administrative officer may permit any employee to be in attendance at work without a certificate of immunization for each disease or other acceptable evidence of immunity to each disease, or documentation of exemption or declination.”
Most of these are the Hepatitis B vaccine declination forms, such as the OSHA form. There are hundreds of these forms. Rather than linking to each one, here are the Google Search results for these keywords. There are other vaccines that one can decline that are worded like the OSHA forms.

TB can be detected by biofeedback machines that are hooked up to a computer, such as the QXCI, Best BioMeridian MSAS (Meridian Stress Assessment) or Electro Dermal Screening, Quantum Life System, and the F-Scan. You will need to ask specifically for a pathogen scan, especially TB. You will also need to request a printout with the results.
