CPS and vaccinations

My child is almost 2 1/2 (28 months) and CPS is involved (long story, though some of you may have read what I posted a while back...can't remember which forum). I talked to the new caseworker and she said that CPS requires any child in their custody be vaccinated. My child has a state exemption (Texas). Any advice? She seems to be understanding of my decisions, and said she would notify me before they make any decision to vaccinate, but I need to know what to do. My child is in their custody legally (huge mixup with the last casework that resulted in this for me...had she done her job it would never have happened, but that's a whole other story), though my parents are the ones taking care of my child and they have the medical custody to do whatever they wish medically...they claim they didn't vaccinate my child at the last checkup, but I don't trust them so I'm unsure. So, basically, what do I do? Also, I haven't researched vaccines actively since my child was a few months old. Has anything new developed in the last 2 years that would give me reason to/not to vaccinate? I need to brush up if I need to fight this. Any advice would be really, really great. My parents have already screwed up just about every decision I've made - no meat, minimal minimal sugar, no chemicals in food, cloth diapers, etc....my child has even started weaning because visits are so far and few in between (because my parents are lazy and don't care much when we see each other), so even my plan to CLW is getting screwed up. Keeping my child from being vaccinated is the only thing I have left of all the decisions I made. I just need to hang onto something...
