Please download whichever form is most relevant for your purposes. The forms are electronically editable as PDF documents, or they may be printed as hard copies and completed by hand.

Statement from PROMIC

“PROMIC does not take responsibility for identifying doctors or other healthcare professionals who will declare exemptions. This is because PROMIC cannot expose such health professionals that may otherwise be targeted by licensing boards. We strongly advise you approach health professionals in your locality. In the event that your doctor or health professional is not prepared to make a declaration, we recommend you self-declare, which is your legal or constitutional right in most parts of the world.”

Religious exemption indicates that there is a provision in the statute that allows parents to exempt their children from vaccination if it contradicts their sincere religious beliefs.

Philosophical exemption indicates that the statutory language does not restrict the exemption to purely religious or spiritual beliefs.  For example, Maine allows restrictions based on “moral, philosophical or other personal beliefs,” and Minnesota allows objections based on “conscientiously held beliefs of the parent or guardian.”

*Missouri’s philosophical exemption only applies to day care centers.
