Georgia Exemptions for Daycare Facilities and K-12 Schools

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).

Have you received conflicting information from your childs school regarding their religious exemption? 

Georgia Coalition 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 the state of Georgia. 


To request a letter, please complete the form found here. 

Link to the exemption form can be found here.
