Exemption Laws By State
Educate Before You Vaccinate
Vaccination requirements are most relevant to children and their families when it comes to daycare, public education and private education. Each state has established its own vaccination requirements and allowances.
The map below is provided courtesy of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) and details each state’s exemptions—the reasons allowed for forgoing the state’s typical vaccination requirements. Please click on the state of interest to learn more about that state’s exemption laws.
Exemptions fall into three categories: Medical, Philosophical and Religious. NVIC maintains detailed information on exemptions, and also addresses other related exemption questions in the Frequently Asked Questions section of their website.
