New Law in Kentucky Affirms Exemptions from Mandatory Vaccinations

On Sunday, March 28, a new bill became law in Kentucky, despite no signature from Governor Beshear, that creates much broader exemptions from mandatory vaccinations. Senate Bill 8 states, in part, that vaccines mandated in the event of an epidemic shall not include:

“The immunization of any child whose parents or guardians are opposed to medical immunization against disease and who object by a written sworn statement to the immunization based on religious grounds or conscientiously held beliefs; or the immunization of any emancipated minor or adult who is opposed to medical immunization against disease, and who objects by a written sworn statement to the immunization based on religious grounds or conscientiously held beliefs.”

The bill also requires the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to “[d]evelop and make… a standardized form relating to exemptions…; and accept a completed standardized form when submitted.”
