Rules about school-required vaccines
- Medical exemptions only need to be submitted once.
- Parents of students in preschool or child care will submit exemptions at each age when vaccines are due. The rule requires filing a non-medical exemption at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months and 18 months of age. Students in grades K-12 must submit a non-medical exemption annually.
- Options for submitting medical and non-medical exemptions can be found on the Vaccine exemptions page.
