Vaccine Requirements

Parents and guardians:

Please be aware that state vaccine requirements for school attendance will not be relaxed for the coming school year despite the COVID-19 pandemic. It is more important than ever that we avoid an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease in our community!  Please contact your PCP's office to make certain that your child is adequately immunized to begin school in the fall. The American Academy of Pediatrics standard of pediatric preventive care includes yearly well child visits. Make those appointments now as offices are reopening and have safety plans in place relative to COVID-19 transmission. HSD requires documentation of compliance with the immunization law for entry into school.
