The immunizations may be documented on the form "Immunization Record" (Form #200) or on the physician’s office form.
NEW requirements affecting all students entering 12th grade!
All students entering 12th grade must be properly immunized with the meningococcal vaccine (Men ACWY). A dose must be received on or after the 16th birthday regardless of the number of doses received before 16 years of age.
Medical exemptions must be reissued annually; and must specify the immunization exempted, provide sufficient information to identify the medical contraindication to the specific immunization, and specify the length of time the immunization is medically contraindicated.
*Demonstrated serologic evidence of polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B or varicella antibodies is acceptable proof of immunity to these diseases. Diagnosis by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner that a child/student has had measles, mumps, or varicella diseases is acceptable proof of immunity to those diseases.
