All immunization requirements will comply with current state requirements.

Conditional Enrollment
Conditional enrollment shall be granted to a student who provides a record that shows he/she has received at least one dose of DTP, DTaP, DT, or Td; one dose of Polio vaccine; one dose of MMR; and one dose of Hepatitis B (if born on or after 1/1/93) and has an appointment date for the next required dose/doses of vaccine. The appointment date shall serve as the exclusion date if the child fails to keep the scheduled appointment. This process shall continue until all required doses of vaccine have been received. Students granted conditional enrollment status last year are not entitled to continue conditional status this year. Conditional enrollment is a one-time condition, not to be extended or renewed for the same dose of vaccine.

Medical Exemptions
Medical exemptions are granted to a child if his/her health care provider thinks that an immunization against a particular disease may be detrimental to the child’s health. The exemption must be written on the health care provider’s letterhead and must be signed by a licensed health care provider. A separate medical exemption is required for each antigen. A specific time frame must be stated for the exemption or for when the situation will be re-evaluated.

Religious Exemptions
Religious exemptions may be granted for all vaccines for an indeterminate length of time. The official New Hampshire Certificate of Religious Exemption form must be signed by the parent/guardian. All exemption forms must be maintained with health records.
