Immunizations

Immunization Information

Students enrolled in Hopkins’ schools must be in compliance with Minnesota Statute 121A.15 regarding immunizations. Students will not be permitted to enroll or attend school until evidence of immunization or exemption is received. There will be no grace period for new or transfer students.

Exceptions may be made as determined by the principal in consultation with the school nurse. An exemption request must include a statement signed by a physician stating that immunization is contraindicated for medical reasons, or laboratory tests confirm the presence of adequate immunity; or the exemption request must include a notarized statement by the parent or guardian saying that the child has not been immunized because of conscientiously held beliefs. 

New vaccine requirement for all 12th graders in 2020/2021 school year

There is a new state requirement for all 12th grade students to have proof of a second meningococcal vaccine at the start of next school year. Please talk to your medical provider now to provide that documentation as soon as possible. The immunization documentation form is linked on this page.  You do have the option to medically exempt or object to vaccination.
