Requirements

CVCS Immunization Policy

In order to protect your child's health we encourage your child to be up-to-date on all immunizations required or recommended for school in Idaho.  Proof of required immunizations must be given to school personnel in order for your child to attend school.

Parents may choose to exempt their child from the state school immunization requirements for personal, medical or religious reasons.  If an exemption is submitted and there is an outbreak of the disease for which the exemption is signed, the exempted student may be excluded from school for the period deemed necessary by Public Health officials.

 

SCHOOL IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS: According to IDAPA 16.02.15, to enter or transfer into public or private schools, all children in preschool and grades K-12 must meet immunization requirements outlined below at registration and before attendance. No child shall attend school without proof of immunization status.

  3. Polio: The 4th dose is not necessary if the 3rd dose was administered at age 4 years or older and at least 6 months after previous dose.
  4. Varicella: History of chickenpox disease documented by a physician or licensed health care professional meets the requirement.

EXEMPTIONS: 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 State of Idaho form provided by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Immunization Program. 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 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. Schools should maintain an up-to-date list of pupils with exemptions so they can be excluded quickly if an outbreak occurs.

REFERENCE: Section 39-4801, Idaho Code: Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Rules, IDAPA 16, Title 02, Chapter 15 “Immunization Requirements for Idaho School Children.”


Please visit with your child's healthcare provider about these.  If your child is in need of immunizations contact your physician.  As immunizations are updated please provide the school with a current copy.
