Idaho Vaccine Exemptions for School

There are 3 Vaccine Immunization Exemptions for Idaho. 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!

Sara Walton Brady, whose son was denied his first day of kindergarten when she used the signed written statement, shares how to invoke your vaccine exemption for schools. 

The only thing to invoke your vaccine exemption is necessary is a signed parental statement.

The schools ARE NOT required to tell you about your right to exemption. They will in fact, in addition to failing to disclose your right to a vaccine exemption many attempt to bully parents into vaccination with forms and letters that indicate a child will be excluded from school in a specific time frame if they are 'up-to-date'. 

Parents are responsible to know your rights and invoke them or you will lose them.

IDAHO STATUTES CLEARLY STATE: VACCINES ARE NOT MANDATED FOR DAYCARE or SCHOOLS.
LAW CLEARLY STATE A PARENT'S WRITTEN STATEMENT IS AN ACCEPTABLE FORM OF IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTION. 


Idaho Code 39.4802 (2) permits a parent/guardian:

  1. The right to choose whether to vaccinate their child.
  2. The right to choose to participate or decline participation in the state registry system (IRIS)
  3. The right to opt out without explanation of objection. This form, created by the Health Dept. is NOT REQUIRED by Idaho statute. Its requirement contradicts the statutes

"Any minor child whose parent or guardian has submitted a signed statement to school officials stating their objections on religious or other grounds shall be exempt from the provisions of this chapter."
