Immunization Exemption:

A student may be exempt from immunizations for medical, religious, or personal reasons. 

For personal and religious reasons, an online Immunization Education Module (opt out form) needs to be completed by the legal guardian.  The exemption certificate then needs to be turned in to the school.

Please refer to the Utah State Immunization Exemption Information page for details on when  exemptions need to be renewed.

For medical reasons, a written notice signed by a licensed health care provider is needed stating that, due to the physical condition of the student, administration of the vaccine would endanger the student’s life or health.
