Exemptions from Immunizations

A medical exemption shall be granted upon receipt of a written statement from a healthcare provider indicating the nature and duration of the medical condition which contraindicates the immunization, along with the specific vaccine identified as detrimental to the student’s health. Medical exemptions expire when the medical condition(s) contraindicating immunization change in a manner which permits immunization, or they may be permanent:

  1. Exemptions are granted on the grounds of pregnancy. An estimated confinement must be provided. Submission of immunization(s) is required once pregnancy ends.

  2. Religious exemptions are permitted when immunizations contradict the student’s religious belief. However, a TB skin test is required, unless medically contraindicated. Religious exemptions require a notary.

In the event of an outbreak of any of the vaccine preventable diseases required by Clark Atlanta University, students with exemptions will be required to leave campus immediately for their protection, until the outbreak has ended.
