MEDICAL EXEMPTION: If a medical exemption is claimed, a Medical Exemption Form must be completed and signed by the student’s licensed physician (Utah
Statutory Code – Section 53A-11-302). The Medical Exemption Form may be obtained from the student’s physician. It must indicate whether the exemption is to one or all immunizations. The WHITE and YELLOW copies will be given to the parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will present the WHITE copy to the school or early childhood program official. The WHITE copy must be attached to this record. The YELLOW copy is for the parent/guardian. The PINK copy will remain in the child’s medical record.

RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION: If a religious exemption is claimed, a Religious Exemption Form must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian. The Religious Exemption Form may be obtained from a local health department. A local health department representative must witness and sign the Religious Exemption Form giving the WHITE and YELLOW copies to the parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will present the WHITE copy to the school or early childhood program official. The WHITE copy must be attached to this record. The YELLOW copy is for the parent/guardian. The PINK copy will remain with the local health department.

PERSONAL EXEMPTION: If a personal exemption is claimed, a Personal Exemption Form must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian. The Personal Exemption Form may be obtained from a local health department. A local health department representative must witness and sign the Personal Exemption Form giving the WHITE and YELLOW copies to the parent/guardian.

Just wanted to add my experience. I went to the Health Clinic today on Main around 3900 South. All I had to do was fill out an exemption for each child and have a nurse sign off on it. She didn't say anything to me about vaxes, didn't make me feel bad or anything. I was quite impressed! It was much easier than I had anticipated.

Utah has the lowest (or next to lowest - I can never remember) vaccination rate in the US - 1 in 4 children is not vaccinated on schedule. Just an FYI
