Immunizations

Please obtain a copy of your child's current/updated immunization record  from their primary care physician or local Health Department to submit with your application.

If your child has not received the recommended immunizations for medical reasons, your doctor will need to provide a medical waiver form.

NEW:  If your child has not received the recommended immunizations for religious or philosophical reasons, the January 2015 changes for nonmedical waivers requires that waivers can only be obtained from the local Health Department. The Health Department of Northwest Michigan holds clinics twice per month and can be contacted at (800) 432-4121.

More information regarding the new changes to immunization waiver can be found at http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdch/Parent_Key_Point_Flyer_478857_7.pdf .

Please note, based on the public health code, a child entering kindergarten, 7th grade, or a new school district (any grade) without either an up-to-date immunization record, a certified non-medical waiver form or a physician signed medical waiver form can be excluded from school.
