  New Certificate of Religious Exemption Form Requirements

 
  Effective August 3, 2015, parents and legal guardians who object to vaccinating their students for religious reasons are required to submit a Certificate of Religious Exemption, signed by a health care provider, as stated in Public Act 99-024. Previously, a parent could simply submit a statement of objection.

The Certificate of Religious Exemption form is available at on the Illinois State Board of Education website here.

The requirement for a Certificate of Religious Exemption will take effect October 16. This date means any students who enroll after October 15 or who have not yet provided proof of immunization must provide a Certificate of Religious Exemption. However, students who have already gone through the process would not be required to revisit a health care provider.

Additional information and some best practices on immunizations are available on the agency website at www.isbe.net/research/pdfs/immunization-guidance.pdf.
