Minnesota's Immunization Law Exemption Provision

Minnesota immunization law requires that in order for a child to enroll in child care, early education programs, or school a parent must show they have received immunizations or an exemption.

Exemptions

  1. Medical Exemption
    If an immunization is medically contraindicated for a child, or if there is laboratory confirmation that a child is already immune to certain diseases against which immunization is normally required, the student may submit a statement to this effect, signed by a health care provider, in order to be considered exempt from the contraindicated or unnecessary immunization.

  2. Elective Exemption
    If a child's parent or guardian, or the child (in the case of an emancipated minor), wishes to be exempt, based on their beliefs, from one or more immunization requirements, the parent or child may submit a statement to this effect, signed by the submitting person and notarized.
