Rochester Might Oust 200 Students Over Vaccine Requirements
ROCHESTER -- The Rochester School District might remove more than
200 students from school next week if they fail to meet immunization
School officials say they have been working since January to notify families
that students must be vaccinated to attend school or provide documents exempting
them from the state law that requires them to be immunized.
The school board unanimously voted Tuesday to remove those students from school
March 1 if they don't submit the required documents. Students will be allowed to
return to class once they do.
School officials are working with the Olmsted Public Health, the Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Clinic to provide easier access to immunizations before school starts in fall
