Image of a syringe.There are NEW IMMUNIZATION GUIDELINES for the 2018-2019 school year. All students in preschool through 12th grade must show proof of having received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school. To meet this requirement, a current Certificate of Immunization Status must be provided to the school showing the dates your child received the two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine. If your child has already received the two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine, he or she will not be required to receive the series again. The Hepatitis A vaccination is administered as a two-dose series with a minimum of 6 months between doses. For students to be compliant with this regulation by the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, students will need to receive their first dose in February 2018. Please contact your healthcare provider for questions regarding your child’s immunization status.
