Vaccination requirements are somewhat complicated. This is as simple as I have been able to make it.5 doses required One must be Tdap (with acellular pertussis component) that is required at 7th grade.4 doses if the 4th dose is on or after the 4th birthdaybooster required every 10 yearsBooster dose must be up to date for the school year at entryof the new year.3 doses if last dose is after the 4th birthday(usually 4 or more doses) last one must be after 4th birthday2 doses. Both must be on or after the 1st birthday3 doses required. 1 month between dose 1 and 2. 2 - 4 months between dose 2 and 3.(if 2 dose hepatitis B is given, official documentation must be provided for proof)2 doses or documentation of disease (month and year)1 dose required for our students. (Students will be required to have a booster dose before college, but this is not a high school requirement.)Affidavit from Department of Health and Human ServicesMust be notarizedRenew every 2 yearsDr signed document that excuses student from immunization due to amedical condition or need. If no medical need is documented, a conscietious affidavit will be required. To be renewed annuallyunless states it is a "life time medical condition".If a student has had a disease or immunization that is not documented,serological (blood) testing indicating the student is immune to the disease in question can be accepted in place of vaccination. A copy of the lab test isrequired.
