Grades Kindergarten through 12th are required to have had the following:
3 Hep B’s
1 for children up to 13years of age
2 Varicella vaccinations if they received their first vaccination at 13 years of age or older
If they have already had the chickenpox, that date is entered in their health record and they are not required to receive an immunization for varicella.
It is required by law that these dates be on file at the school your student attends, or that a Waiver is signed by a parent or guardian stating that there is a Personal, Medical, or Religious reason for the child, not being immunized.
When children begin kindergarten or students transfer from other districts, it is ultimately the parents’ responsibility to ensure that the above information gets to the district school nurse.
