Wisconsin law requires that children admitted to an elementary, middle, junior or senior high school or into any day care center or nursery school present evidence that they have received certain immunizations and provide this document to that institution. However, this requirement is waived if parents object to immunization “for reasons of health, religion or personal conviction.”
Unless homeschoolers decide to take classes at public or private schools, this statute does not apply to them as noted on page 6 of the Department of Health Services publication, “Wisconsin School Immunization Requirements, 2016-2017.”
