Important protection
State law requires that all students K-12 obtain a certificate of immunization before enrolling in school. The certificate verifies permanent immunization against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella. All kindergarten and first- and second-grade students are required to have had their second measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) shot. The certificate of immunization must show the dates of both MMR shots.
