37.114.715    MEDICAL EXEMPTION

(1) A prospective pupil seeking to attend school is not required to have any immunizations which are medically contraindicated. A written and signed statement from a physician that an immunization is medically contraindicated will exempt a prospective pupil from those immunization requirements as deemed necessary by the physician. The required vaccines are listed in 20-5-403 , MCA.

(2) The statement must include:

(a) which specific immunization is contraindicated;

(b) the period of time during which the immunization is contraindicated;

(c) the reasons for the medical contraindication; and

(d) when deemed necessary by a physician, the results of immunity testing performed on a pupil entering kindergarten through grade 12. The tests must indicate serological evidence of immunity and must be performed by a CLIA approved lab. A copy of the test result must be attached to HES 101, beginning with school enterers in school year 2005-2006.

(3) It is preferred, but not mandatory, that a physician's medical exemption be recorded on HES 101.

(4) The physician's written statement must be maintained by the school as part of the immunization record of the pupil qualifying for the exemption. In preschool and kindergarten through grade 12 settings, the written statement must be attached to the HES 101 beginning with the 2005-2006 school year.
