Exemptions to Immunization Requirements: Idaho law allows a parent/guardian to claim an exemption from immunization requirements for their child for medical, religious, or personal reasons. All exemptions must be documented on the official Idaho Exemption Form provided by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Immunization Program (available at www.immunizeidahoschools.com). A medical exemption requires the signature of a licensed physician and certification that the child has a medical condition, which prevents him or her from receiving one or more of the required vaccinations. The law does not allow parents/guardians to claim an exemption because the shot record is lost or incomplete, or because it is too much trouble to contact the physician or clinic and obtain a copy.
