    Vaccines are not required in Canada. Your daughter cannot be taken away based on your vaccination choices. This is what youll need to sign to get her into school in Ontario if she doesnt have all the vaccines required for school. http://vran.org/wp-content/documents/VRAN-Statement%20of%20Conscience%20or%20Religious%20Belief%20Affidavit.pdfThe DTaP (diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis) cannot be broken into 3 separate vaccines. However, there is a DT vaccine with just diphtheria/tetanus. There is no separate pertussis vaccine.Here are the vaccine package inserts, which are proof that they exist. These are all available in the United States, but they might not all be in Canada. DT (diphtheria/tetanus) by Sanofi Pasteur http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM101500.pdfDTaP (diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis by Sanofi Pasteur http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM101580.pdf (this one contains mercury)DTaP also by Sanofi Pasteur http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM103037.pdf (If I were forced at gunpoint to give my kids a DTaP vaccine, this is the one I would choose).DTaP by GlaxoSmithKline http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM124514.pdf (this one contains a lot of aluminum)Im sure Canada offers the DT vaccine (without pertussis), because there are some babies who have such horrible reactions to the first DTaP vaccine, that their doctors will refuse to give another pertussis containing vaccine.Im not sure why you want your child to get the polio vaccine. I dont know about Canada, but in the United States, there have been zero cases of natural polio (not caused by the vaccine) since 1979. Between 1979 and 2000, when the U.S. was still using the live virus polio vaccine, there were some cases of polio caused by the vaccine. Are you worried that your child will be the first to catch polio in 30+ years?? If so, go ahead and give her the shot, but statistically speaking, it makes no sense.The chance of your child catching diphtheria is also basically zero percent. And there are about 30 cases of tetanus per year in the United States, with a large percentage of those cases in people over 40 years and heroin users. So the chance of your daughter getting tetanus is also close to zero. Really, out of polio, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, the only thing she has a chance of catching is pertussis. That vaccine does not come separately. If you insist on getting the pertussis vaccine, it must be combined with diphtheria and tetanus.The MMR is no longer available separately. Merck stopped production of the separate measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines in December 2008. MMR can be dangerous, but it is not because of thimerosal, because it never contained thimerosal. The MMR vaccine cannot contain thimerosal because thimerosal would kill the live viruses in the vaccine.
