Under federal law, employers and universities cannot legally mandate COVID vaccines because they are unlicensed Emergency Use Authorization products which are, by definition, experimental.
In Illinois, parents or legal guardians who object, for religious reasons, to their child being immunized for school entrance must submit a Certificate of Religious Exemption, which now must be signed by a health care provider. Signed into law on August 3, 2015, this new legislation requires a health care provider to sign the certificate confirming they have provided education to the parents or legal guardians about the benefits of immunizations and the health risks of not vaccinating students.
If you are being required to vaccinate for employment, you can use the Employment Exemption form found on the Now Exempt page.
Church of a Higher Power’s General Exemption Statement:
It is my strong religious belief that I shall not, without consent, add nor subtract anything to or from my body. Forcing this would directly violate the Free Excercise Clause and would strip me of my fundamental right to Religious Liberty.
