Exceptions
The Maine Legislature passed a new law regarding immunization exemptions. It takes effect for Fall 2021.  The only exemptions allowed now are medical. You must submit a physician’s statement that immunization against one or more diseases is medically inadvisable and you must meet the requirements for those immunizations not covered by the physician’s statement.
