In the state of Indiana, “philosophical objection” is not a valid reason for exemption. Valid reasons for immunization exemptions include religious as well as medical reasons. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the required exemption form in full and return it to the Health Center. Students who file for an exemption, must still complete the required health card and physical. In the event of an outbreak of a vaccine-preventable communicable disease on or near campus, the student with exemptions on file will be required to leave campus until it is deemed safe for them to return by the local Health Department and the Health Center.
Please contact the Health Center at 812-488-2033 or send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
