State law requires proof of student immunizations

The Minnesota School Immunization Law (MS121A.11) requires all students to provide proof of vaccine preventable disease immunizations to enroll or remain enrolled in school. Seventh grade students are required to have a vaccination for meningitis.
There are exceptions to the immunization rules. The state law does allow a process for parents/guardians to file a legal exemption to immunizations for medical reasons or conscientiously held beliefs. The conscientious objection must be notarized and turned in to the student’s Health Service office at his/her school. The form is available on the district website or from the health service office at your student’s school. More detailed information about immunizations is available in the Anoka-Hennepin policy handbook.
