Immunization and Health Checks




Table of Contents


The only children who are exempt from the immunization and health check requirements are those who have been exempted or would be exempted by the Department of Education.  Children will be exempt from the immunization or health check requirement if:


·        The child’s physician or the Department of Health provides a signed and dated statement giving a medical reason why the child should not be given a specified immunization.


·        The child’s caretaker/parent makes a clear statement that such immunizations or health checks conflict with the client’s religious tenets and practices.
