What has the new rule changed for parents/guardians?
Parents/guardians who want to claim a nonmedical waiver will have an opportunity to have a discussion about immunizations with county health department staff and receive information on the benefits of vaccination and the risks of vaccine-preventable diseases. The new rule does not take away a parent’s/guardian’s right to obtain a nonmedical waiver.
