New Mexico Law requires that all children entering day care and/or school to be immunized against measles, mumps, polio, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, hepatitis B, haemophilus influenza, varicella and meningitis or provide a notzrized waiver for medical or religious exemption. Immunization exemption must be on the proper New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) Form below:
CERTIFICATE OF EXEMPTION FROM IMMUNIZATION (ENGLISH VERSION)
CERTIFICATE OF EXEMPTION FROM IMMUNIZAITON (SPANISH VERSION)
Children will not be enrolled unless an immunization record is presented/provided and immunizations are up-to-date, unless your child has a valid exemption or is experiencing homelessness.
The New Mexico Immunization Exemption Statute (24-5-3) allows only two types of exemptions for children seeking exemption from required immunizations to enter school, childcare or pre-school. The two types of exemptions are medical or religious.
The law does not grant immunization exemptions for philosophical or personal reasons.
If approved, the parent/guardian will receive two copies of the original form with a clear "Approved" box checked, a signature from an officer of the Department, and an expiration date. The parent/guardian must take the approved form to the child's school - an electronic format of this form will NOT be accepted. An exemption is required at the beginning of the school year. If an exemption is not approved or in process, your child will be considered out of compliance.
