Conditional enrollment and exclusion criteria are outlined in the Utah Immunization Rule. A student may be exempt from immunizations for medical, religious, or personal reasons.
Proof of immunity to disease(s) can be accepted in place of vaccination only if a document from a licensed healthcare provider stating the student previously contracted the disease is presented to the school.
For personal and religious reasons, an online Immunization Education Module (opt-out form) needs to be completed by the legal guardian. The exemption certificate MUST be turned in to the school and renewed per the Utah State Immunization Exemption Information guidelines.
Medical exemptions require a note from the student's licensed healthcare provider.
