Just Published - Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide
is an illustrated 55-page guide published in 2014 by the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) that gives an overview of why vaccine safety and informed consent protections should be secured in all U.S. vaccine policies and laws. This resource is invaluable for consumers, legislators and policy-makers. Download your copy today!
Be sure to visit our Vaccine Law
page, which provides an overview of exemptions, the difference between required vs. recommended vaccines
, and tips on filing a religious exemption letter in your state. Our Vaccine Law page also notes exemption statute language of interest for residents of California and New Mexico with regard to religious and personal/philosophical belief exemptions. States with an asterick next to them are states that have enacted recent restrictions to exemption laws.
