Vaccination: Using the First Amendment to Opt Out of This Potentially Damaging Procedure

Story at-a-glance -

  • 48 states in the U.S. allow an exemption to vaccination for religious beliefs, which provides a legal option that parents with sincerely held religious and spiritual beliefs about vaccine use can file for their children to attend school
  • In order to file and receive a religious exemption to vaccination, you do not have to be a member of a specific church that opposes vaccination and your belief in an organized religion (Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islam, etc.) should not preclude you from exercising religious belief exemption to vaccination; however you must be prepared to explain and defend your religious beliefs regarding vaccination when questioned by state officials
  • You can claim a religious exemption to vaccination if you hold a sincere belief that use of one or more vaccines violates your spiritual beliefs or ability to obey your conscience after seeking guidance through prayer or study of scripture
  • The first amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects your right to worship freely; if a school district or state violates this right, including your right to exercise religious exemption to vaccination, you can elect to take legal action
