Immunization Waiver Information

Immunization Waiver Information

In December 2014, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules approved a new educational requirement for Michigan parents opting their children out of getting vaccinated before entering school.

The new rule allows parents/guardians to have the opportunity to speak with a health educator from their local health department about their concerns and questions regarding immunizations prior to the nonmedical waiver being signed.

Any parent/guardian who wants to claim a nonmedical waiver will need to receive education regarding the benefits of vaccination and the risks of disease from a county health department before obtain the certified nonmedical waiver form through the local health department. The new rule requires the use of the State of Michigan nonmedical waiver form dated January 1, 2015.

With Michigan having one of the highest waiver rates in the country, a proactive approach has been established to help inform everyone regarding the benefits of vaccinations and the risks of disease. The hope is that the new rule will help answer any questions/concerns one may have regarding immunizations.

The new rule does not take away your right to obtain a nonmedical waiver. Nonmedical waivers will need to be obtained at the county health department; schools will not have them.

If at the end of your visit, you request a nonmedical waiver for your child, you will receive a copy of the current, certified (stamped and signed) State of Michigan Nonmedical Waiver form.

Based on the public health code, a child without either an up-to-date immunization record, a certified nonmedical waiver from a physician signed medical waiver form can be excluded from school.
