Purpose: Uphold Minnesota Law (M.S.135A.14)
Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14) requires proof that all students born after 1956, are vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella, allowing for certain specified exemptions. The Immunization form is designed to provide the school with the information required by the law and will be available for review by the Minnesota Department of Health and the local health agency.
"Student" means a person born after 1956 who did not graduate from a Minnesota high school in 1997 or later, and who is (1) registering for more than one class during a full academic term, such as a quarter or a semester or (2) housed on campus and is registering for one or more classes. Student does not include persons who are only enrolled in extension classes, correspondence classes, online classes, or evening or weekend adult accelerated programs.
