On January 1, 2014, new legal requirements became effective for parents who want to exempt their child from one or more immunizations upon school entry.  According to this law, the parent must use the attached one page form developed by the California Department of Public Health and provide:

  • A letter of affidavit requesting an exemption that states that the required immunizations are contrary to their beliefs, and
  • A statement signed and dated by a health care practitioner and parent indicating that the practitioner has provided, and the parent has received, information about the benefits and risks of immunizations and the risks of vaccine-preventable diseases.

This documentation must be returned to school before your child can be officially enrolled in IUSD.  For medical or religious exemptions, contact Health Services for further assistance at (949) 936-7520.  For “Frequently Asked Questions on Personal Belief Exemptions (AB2109)”, go to
