The Minnesota Department of Health has introduced a new Immunization Form to help parents document their child’s immunization history or medical/non-medical exemption. The new form will also assist schools in collecting the immunization information they need to comply with the School Immunization Law and complete the Annual Immunization Status Report (AISR). There have been no changes to the law or requirements, only improvements to the form.
