Immunizations
State law requires all students, K-12, to obtain a certificate of immunization before enrolling in school. The certificate verifies permanent immunization against diphtheria, Pertussis, tetanus, polio, and measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). State law also now requires the hepatitis B vaccine (a three-dose series) for entry into kindergarten, first and seventh grades. A second MMR is required for entry into grades K-8. The certificate of immunization must show the dates of both MMR shots. Mumps immunizations are required for school entry and day-care attendance.
