IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTIONS FOR SCHOOLS & DAYCARES IN LOUISIANA
It is very important that everyone, especially our members, is aware of their right to an exemption and how to submit one.
ALL schools, colleges AND daycares, public AND private (including Catholic schools), MUST accept exemptions.
To submit an exemption, the parent or guardian simply turns in a written statement to the school/daycare stating that he/she is claiming an exemption to the immunization requirement (no need to explain why).
*It does NOT need to be notarized.
*It does NOT have to be from a doctor, unless you want a medical exemption, but it is not necessary since Louisiana allows personal/philosophical and religious exemptions for schools and daycares.
Some schools ask you submit one at the beginning of each school year. Simply print the same one you used before and sign and date again.
