Georgia Exemptions

Georgia law allows for two types of exemptions from the immunization requirements: medical and religious. Each child must have one of two items on file - either a valid Georgia Immunization Certificate (Form 3231) or a signed, notarized statement, which is called an affidavit of religious exemption (DPH 2208).

GCVC has compiled detailed exemption information for children of all ages (from newborns in daycare through kids in college). Click below for resources.

*For additional information on school requirements, please visit the Georgia Department of Education.

Have you received conflicting information from your child's school regarding their religious exemption? 

GCVC has compiled a letter for parents to send to schools who have distributed materials that conflict with the full law and exemptions to immunization in Georgia.
