Immunization Exemptions



The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) supports immunization of infants, children, adolescents and adults as defined by recommendations set forth in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and approved by the AAFP. With the exception of policies which allow for refusal due to a documented allergy or medical contraindication, the AAFP does not support immunization exemption policies.
