If you need to request an exemption from COVID-19 vaccination due to personal or medical reasons, here is a sample vaccine exemption letter to use as a guide.
Dear [Employer/School Administration],
I am writing to request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for personal/medical reasons. I understand the importance of vaccination in preventing the spread of the virus, but due to [insert personal/medical reason], I am unable to receive the vaccine at this time.
[If personal reason] As an individual, I strongly value my autonomy and personal beliefs. While I respect the company/school’s decision to require vaccination, I believe that this decision should ultimately be left to each individual. I am aware that my decision not to receive the vaccine may impact my ability to participate in certain activities, but I am willing to take appropriate precautions to protect myself and others.
[If medical reason] I have consulted with my healthcare provider and have been advised against receiving the COVID-19 vaccine due to [insert medical reason]. While I understand the risks associated with not receiving the vaccine, I believe that this decision is in the best interest of my health.
I am willing to comply with any alternative measures that may be necessary to ensure the safety of myself and others, such as wearing a mask or undergoing regular testing. I also understand that my exemption may be subject to review as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
