Required Boosters for School Attendance 

Summer is a great time to make sure students are up-to-date on immunizations for the 2019-2020 school year.  The following are required boosters for school attendance.  Please note this is not a complete list of all vaccines. 

5th graders are required to have two doses of the Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine

7th graders are required to have the Tdap vaccine and three doses of the Polio vaccine.  One dose of the Polio vaccine must be after the 4th birthday. 

After the 1st birthday, one dose of the MMR vaccine is required for childcare, and two doses of the MMR vaccine are required for school attendance.  

The following immunizations are not required for school attendance, but are available to help protect against illness:  Meningitis A/B, HPV, and Flu (in the fall).
