Minnesota Statutes Section 121A.15 requires children enrolled in a Minnesota school to be immunized against certain diseases, allowing for specified exceptions. This form is designed to provide the school with information required by the law. Students not in compliance-i.e., their immunizations are not up-to-date-will be excluded from school.
A copy of the student's current immunization record must be on file, at school.
Check now with your family doctor or clinic to see if your child(ren) has all the immunizations required for their age. If the student receives an immunization during the summer months send by mail, fax, or drop off at the school the date (day, month and year) of the shot received. If you have questions or do not have insurance contact the nurse at your child's school for assistance.
Parents may get a legal exemption for medical reasons or conscientiously held beliefs.
