Idaho Vaccine Exemption for Daycare & Schools
YES, there are 3 Exemptions to Vaccines for Idaho. Idaho law allows a parent or guardian to claim an immunization exemption for their child for medical, religious or other reasons. A medical exemption must be completed by a licensed physician. While the schools or daycare might recommend that exemptions for religious or other reasons be documented on the form provided by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Immunization Program the law does NOT REQUIRE A FORM.
Parents have a right to OPT their children out of some (or all) the state-mandated vaccines for daycare and school. The 3 exemptions for the state are medical, religious, and ‘other’. No shots, no school is simply not true! The only thing necessary to evoke your child’s immunization exemption is a signed parental statement.
