Parents, guardians, or emancipated students may apply for a waiver to the mandatory immunizations required for entry into schools and child caring facilities.
Wyoming Statute 21-4-309(a) grants authority to the State Health Officer and County Health Officer to authorize waivers “upon submission of written evidence of religious objection or medical contraindication to the administration of any vaccine.”
Wyoming statute does NOT allow for the authorization of waiver requests based on philosophical beliefs.
To apply for an waiver, complete the most appropriate form below. The form must be completed in its entirety and must contain original signatures; photocopies and faxes are not accepted. Waiver requests may be approved by either the State Health Officer or your local County Health Officer.
Submit requests to:
- Your local County Health Officer (click here for locations), or
- The State Health Officer at Wyoming Department of Health, 6101 Yellowstone Road, Suite 420, Cheyenne, WY 82002, Attn: Immunization Exemptions.
