HB14-1288 - Student Immunizations Prior To School Attendance

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Personal Belief Exemptions To Immunization Requirements For Children Prior To Attending School.

When a parent, guardian, emancipated student, or student 18 years of age or older has a personal belief that is opposed to immunizations, the bill requires the person to submit to the student's school a statement of exemption that includes:

  • The signature of a health care provider or an authorized representative of the department of public health and environment (department) or of a county, district, or municipal public health agency who is permitted and qualified to administer vaccines stating that the parent, guardian, or student received information disclosing the benefits and risks of immunizations to the student and the community; or
  • A certificate of completion of an on-line education module developed by the infant immunization program at the department that discloses the benefits and risks of immunization to the student and the community.

The bill also requires the department to promulgate rules concerning student immunizations.
