The remaining immunizations must be completed on schedule for the child to remain in attendance. If one calendar month past due, the school must immediately exclude the child from school until the required immunization is completed, per the Utah Department of Health.

A student may be exempt from immunizations for medical, religious, or personal reasons. The appropriate Exemption Form must be filed with the Summit County Health Department. The parent or guardian must give the school the original white copy of the exemption form, to be kept in the child's cumulative file at the school. Photocopies or faxes are not acceptable. In the event of an outbreak, students who have claimed an exemption or are on conditional enrollment, and have not received the immunization for which there is an outbreak, are to be excluded from school.
