Vaccine Exemptions exist in Idaho. Your child IS NOT REQUIRE to be vaccinated to attend school or daycare. As a parent you have the responsibility to be aware of the law and NOT be bullied by school officials. Law says a statement from the parent is ALL that is required is a statement from parents. Health Department Rules say that statement must appear on their form. NO WHERE in the law does it require parents to provide personal information or admit to causing harm to their child by avoiding vaccinations.
There are 2 forms provided by the Department of Health. Legally you are required to make a statement of objection (you do not have to clarify that statement), your child's name and birthday. Any additional information required by schools or the Health Department is illegal.
SCHOOL VACCINE EXEMPTION FORM
CHILDCARE VACCINE EXEMPTION FORM
IDAHO STATUTES CLEARLY STATE: VACCINES ARE NOT MANDATED FOR DAYCARE or SCHOOLS. LAWS CLEARLY STATE A PARENT'S WRITTEN STATEMENT IS AN ACCEPTABLE FORM OF IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTION. The Public Health Department refuses to accept a parents' written affidavit, which leads many to wonder HOW IS THAT LEGAL?
Idaho's Health & Welfare Department created a mandatory immunization form that falls FAR OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF CURRENT STATUTES. The form demands parents to provide additional information, explanations and to sign acknowledgements that are not required in Idaho code.
Parents are being forced to sign a form that fall far outside the law and when they refuse to be bullied their children are denied school entrance.
The Public Health department is getting away with creating their own rules and children are being denied access to daycare and schools. Regardless of your opinion on the efficacy of vaccines, it is unacceptable to allow the Department of Health to mandate a discriminatory form for school enrollment that violates privacy and is potentially self-incriminating.
Health Freedom Idaho has teamed up with legal experts to help guarantee that Idaho families are not bullied or discriminated by the Health Department and schools when they invoke their legally protected right to vaccine exemptions. If your family is being bullied by school officials or the IDHW Immunization Exemption Form, please contact HFI team members at IamExempt@ healthfreedomidaho.org
Together we will Stop the Bullying and Protect Our Rights.
