EXEMPTIONS: Idaho law allows a parent/guardian to claim an exemption from immunization requirements for their child for medical, religious, or other reasons. A medical exemption requires the signature of a licensed physician and certification that the child has a medical condition which prevents him or her from receiving required vaccinations. Exemptions for religious or other reasons must be documented on the official State of Idaho form provided by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Immunization Program. Schools should maintain an up-to-date list of pupils with exemptions so they can be excluded quickly if an outbreak occurs.
