New law in effect.
Now you are required to use the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s standard Certificates of Medical and Nonmedical Exemption.
Beginning the 2021-2022 school year, there will be 2 ways to file a nonmedical exemption.
- Option 1. Download the official Certificate of Nonmedical Exemption to be signed by an immunizing provider: Colorado licensed physician (MD, DO), Advanced practice nurse, or Physician Assistant, or pharmacist.
*Form can be found at https://cdphe.colorado.gov/vaccine-exemptions under downloadable Certificate of Nonmedical Exemption
- Option 2 is to take an online Immunization Education Module.
This is available 24 hours/day and 7 days/week at https://www.dcphrapps.dphe.state.co.us/storyline360/story.html After completion of the course, an electronic form must be completed to obtain the Certificate of Nonmedical exemption.
You will have the option to complete a form for more than one minor in the family without having to retake the module.
