According to Minnesota Statute 121.A15, students need immunizations for enrollment in schools. Updated immunizations are required upon entering Kindergarten and Grade 7. Other non-required immunizations may be given during the appropriate age level.
No student is required to receive an immunization which is contrary to the conscientiously held beliefs of the parent or guardian. To receive an exemption, complete the exemption portion of the immunization form and have it notarized.
Got Your Shots? The Minnesota Department of Health website provides up-to-date information about immunizations and school requirements, or check out the Health Partners No Shots, No School Program, making immunizations more accessible for school-age children.
