Spent over an hour on the phone today with NYS Department of Taxation trying to figure out some discrepancies on my account. Finally when I insisted on talking to a supervisor everything was sorted and explained to my satisfaction in less than 10 minutes. Got a call back from same supervisor a couple of hours later telling me that he looked further into my account after our conversation and found a couple of hundred dollars that were owed to me, and were unaccounted for. Unfortunately they can't EFT it, so I'll have to wait for the check.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Family was talking about measles outbreak, and various family names that don’t vaccinate were mentioned. So my son asked “isn’t there a vaccine for the anti-vax virus?”

See my edit above. That answer was implied in his rhetorical question.

Will also add that this was following a discussion of the fact that these people shouldn’t be claiming religious exemptions, as those might only apply to some Amish and “witnesses”. Our religion probably says that one must vaccinate.

+1. I wonder what the heter is for claiming that you hold religious beliefs other than Judaism.

What's wrong with ונשמרתם... as their beliefs?

Unless religious exemption is only for the philosophical argument of no medical intervention.

It's not a religious exemption, it's "personal belief"

Which Halachic authority says that not listening to medical professionals is ונשמרתם? On the contrary, vaccination is ונשמרתם.

If one caught the Anti-Vax virus, that's their problem, but don't claim it's for religious reasons.

There are 2 separate kinds of exemptions.
