Vaccination Exemption Requests

Vaccination Exemption

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that healthcare workers are immune to specific vaccine preventable diseases. While the College of Southern Idaho does not require COVID-19 vaccinations at this time, in order to promote health and safety, some of our clinical affiliates follow ACIP recommendations and therefore require CSI students and faculty to be vaccinated before entering their facilities.

Students and faculty may request vaccination exemptions for medical and religious grounds. 

To do so, applicants must:

  1. Fill out the appropriate form (medical or religious exemption request, found on this page).
  2. Upload the exemption request to your Complio account. If you do not have a Complio account, please email your request to Gena Laird glaird@csi.edu. You may also drop off your exemption request at the HSHS front office.

Your exemption request will be reviewed and the decision to approve or deny will be communicated to you through Complio, which emails the address you associated with your Complio account. If you do not have a Complio account, vaccination exemption approval or denial will be communicated to you via the email address you provide.

Please understand that if your exemption request is not approved, you will be unable to attend clinical experiences in facilities with immunization requirements. Failure to complete clinical experiences may lead to failing grades and your inability to successfully graduate. Alternative clinical educational experiences may be available for those lacking vaccinations or exemptions. However, these alternative clinical experiences are not guaranteed and vary based on a program-to-program basis.
