Under federal law, employers and universities cannot legally mandate COVID vaccines because they are unlicensed Emergency Use Authorization products that are, by definition, experimental.
In North Carolina, there is no specific form for students to request religious exemptions. To claim a religious exemption, the parent or person requesting the exemption must write a statement of their religious objection to immunization, including the name and date of birth of the person for whom the exemption is being requested. This statement would then be provided to schools, child care programs, camps, etc. in place of an immunization record. If a family is requesting a religious exemption for more than one child, separate statements should be prepared for each child. Statements of religious objection to immunization do not need to be notarized, signed by a religious leader, or prepared by an attorney and do not need to be submitted to the state for review or approval.
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.
