Vaccine Laws

State & National Vaccine Law

Welcome to NVIC's webpage on vaccine laws. Here you will be able to access resources that will assist you in making educated vaccine decisions. For example, you can learn about the  differences between vaccine requirements that govern being able to attend school or daycare and a federal vaccine recommendation. There are also resources below that will help you find out which types of vaccine exemptions are available in your state, how to protect and expand vaccine exemptions, and much more.

It is also important to understand that your legal right to take a religious, philosophical, personal or conscientious belief exemption is under attack in many states and that medical exemptions to vaccination are increasingly more difficult to obtain.

We hope that you will join NVIC’s efforts to protect your human and informed consent right to make voluntary vaccine decisions by registering with NVIC’s Advocacy Portal. Once registered, you will receive action alerts for your state, and to learn how to easily and effectively take action to protect choice and communicate with your legislators about the importance of voluntary vaccine decision-making. You can also read and use NVIC’s Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide and start the conversation with your legislator today to protect your vaccine informed consent rights.
