Ever hear the phrase "No Shots, No School."?
Well to put it simply, it isn't true.
A vaccine exemption is for those who do not vaccinate or selectively vaccinate. It is to be used in place of an immunization record, for daycares, preschools and/or K-12 schools that are licensed or certified through the state.
The state of Kentucky recognizes two of the three vaccine exemptions offered in the U.S., Medical and Religious.
A medical exemption is only available via a doctor. A doctor must fill out the proper form and sign it for it to be valid. But this is done entirely at the doctor's own discretion. Medical exemptions are fairly rare as most doctors, even if sympathetic to reactions, are wary to impart them given the current controversial climate surrounding vaccines.
A religious exemption in KY is quite simply a written, sworn statement illustrating that you do not believe in vaccinating based on religious grounds.
