- K.A.R 28-1-20 defines immunizations required for any individual who attends school or a childcare program operated by a school.
- Proof of receiving the immunizations must be provided to the school prior to attending the first day of school.
Legal alternatives to immunizations include:
- Kansas Certificate of Immunizations Medical Exemption Form B completed annually by a licensed physician.
- Religious Exemption letter signed by a parent/guardian stating that the student is adherent to religious beliefs opposing vaccination. Kansas Law does not permit exemptions to vaccination solely on the grounds of personal or philosophical beliefs.
