Connecticut Ends Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions for Schools, Daycares

Apr 30 2021

Connecticut has removed all non-medical vaccine exemptions for children in schools and daycares. The state legislature’s vote came after three years of debate and record-breaking hours of public testimony.

Connecticut now joins five other states that only allow medical exemptions to school entry requirements: California, Maine, Mississippi, New York, and West Virginia. All children currently enrolled in kindergarten through high school will, however, keep their non-medical vaccine exemptions.
