What are some examples of 'matters of conscience" when stated on a legal document?

I know some "mandatory" vaccines can be avoided by matters of conscience, or something like that. I also know that most/all colleges require the Meningitis vaccine, and I don't mind taking that. I just have a problem with needles. Really big. Well, my major requires that I also get a Hep B shot, which comes in three doses spaced two months apart. Then, they draw blood to check for Hep B! This really is not in my best interest and it doesn't sound safe if they have to check to make sure it didn't have the opposite effect on you. I'll be 17 when I enter college and I know all the risks of Hep B, but to me it actually seems like the risk would be smaller NOT getting it. What are some of these "matters of conscience" I could use? Because it also says "including religion."

"Matters of conscience" sounds like ethics and moral reasoning to me? What's important to you and why? :)
