Immunization and Legislative Updates
School Nurses now have access to the NH Immunization Registry:
9/23/2022 UPDATE Notice from the Immunization Program:
On September 16th JLCAR did not approve the NH Immunization Program use of the new Religious Exemption form. Therefore, this form was removed from our website and should no longer be distributed by schools or childcares for use.
At this time please only distribute the previous version of the religious exemption form (attached) and notify the parent that they are not required to have the form notarized as notary signature is no longer required per HB 1035 (effective July 19, 2022)
OR inform the parent that they may elect to submit a signed letter to request religious exemption. As a reminder all religious exemption forms are to retained by the school and not forwarded to DHHS.
Any new forms that have been received with parents/guardians signature may be kept on file and considered valid. Further communication on the status of an updated form will be sent out and posted on our website when available https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/programs-services/disease-prevention/immunizations/immunization-exemptions-children.
