New immunization rules went into effect last year and are required as students return to in-person learning in September.
The changes include:
Tdap vaccine is required for entry into 7th grade
Immunization records turned in to schools are required to be medically verified
The definition of conditional status has been clarified
It is important to note that students may begin school if they have received all of the required immunizations they are due to receive and have submitted medically verified records on or before the first day of attendance. Students not in compliance with state immunization laws will not be allowed to attend.
