Immunizations Needed for School

Minnesota Statute 121A.15 requires every student enrolled in school to be immunized against certain diseases or file a legal medical or non-medical exemption. This law includes students enrolled in public and non-public PreK-12 programs, as well as childcare, preschool, alternative programs and home school programs. 

Students will not be able to attend school as of 09/09/2019 if their immunizations are not in compliance. If students arrive at school, a parent/guardian will be called to pick them up.

  • Immunization Form - This form can be used to document vaccinations and/or to claim an exemption from the requirements for medical or non-medical exemptions.

  • Medical exemptions must be signed by a health care provider.

  • Non-medical exemptions must be signed by a parent/guardian and notarized

  •  Schools will accept other versions of immunization records too as long as all required immunizations are listed.
