Exemption to School Immunizations

Starting in 2016, SB 277 went into effect, and personal belief exemptions are no longer an option.  This bill removed exemptions for immunizations except for medical reasons verified through CAIR-ME, which is required through your doctor.   

No longer permits immunization exemptions based on personal beliefs for children in child care and public and private schools;
Only permits personal belief exemptions submitted before January 1, 2016 to remain valid until a pupil reaches kindergarten or 7th grade;
