Information about Vaccine Exemptions for SY 2022/23

Back to school can be a stressful time for families, especially now when there are new laws and guidance around immunizations. The No Shot No School law requires full immunization for children 12 and older with the only acceptable exception to the law being medical and religious exemptions.

Linked below is information about medical and religious exemptions. The first link is the current form you need to document a medical exception – alternative documentation (physician statement for example) is acceptable.

However, to request a religious exemption there is a new process for that. In order to obtain the form for religious exemption it must be requested directly from DC Health. This link will have all the information you need to know about the process and the other forms that are required in order to obtain a religious exemption.
