New Religious Exemption Requirements

November 17, 2015

NEW RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION RULES, EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 2015

    The state of Illinois requires all parents or guardians to provide evidence of completing the required physical examination and immunizations for school entry. In the event that a student has a religious exemption to either the physical examination, and/or immunizations, a religious exemption form must be filled out.  This is a new state law effective October 16, 2015.  The following form is the only form allowed and MUST be filled out and signed by a physician to qualify for the exemption.  A separate form will need to be filled out for each student.  The form can be found at the following link (see related sites below)

This form may not be used for exemptions from immunizations and/or physical examination for personal or philosophical reasons.  Illinois state law does not allow for such exemptions.
