A student must be fully immunized against certain diseases or must present a certificate or statement that, for medical reasons or reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, the student will not be immunized. For exemptions based on reasons of conscience, only official forms issued by the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS), Immunization Branch, can be honored by the district. This form may be obtained by writing the TDSHS Immunization Branch (MC 1946), P.O. Box 149347, Austin, Texas 78714‐9347; or online at https://corequest.dshs.texas.gov/. The form must be notarized and submitted to the principal or school nurse within 90 days of notarization. If the parent is seeking an exemption for more than one student in the family, a separate form must be provided for each student.

If a student should not be immunized for medical reasons, the student or parent must present a certificate signed by a U.S. licensed physician stating that, in the doctor’s opinion, the immunization required poses a significant risk to the health and well‐being of the student or a member of the student’s family or household. This certificate must be renewed yearly unless the physician specifies a life‐long condition. Proof of immunization may be established by personal records from a licensed physician or public health clinic with a signature or rubber‐stamp validation.

Children enrolled in pre-kindergarten or early childhood programs shall have the following immunizations (at the ages indicated) against: DTaP (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), IPV (polio), HIB (haemophilus influenza type b), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, PCV (Pneumococcal), Varicella, and TB skin test with documented results.

Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade shall have the following vaccines, according to the schedule listed.

  1. Diptheria/ Pertussis/ Tetanus (DTaP):  Students are required to have four doses- one of which must have been received on or after the fourth birthday.  Students seven years of age or older are required to have at least three doses, provided at least one dose was received on or after the fourth birthday.

  2. Tetanus (Tdap) Booster:  For students in seventh grade, one dose of the Tdap is required if at least five years have passed since the last dose of a tetanus-containing vaccine.  For students in grades 8-12, one dose received 10 years after the last DTP/DTaP/Tdap dose is required. If a medical contraindication to pertussis exists, Td is acceptable in place of Tdap.

  3. Polio (IPV):  Students are required to have three doses, one of which must have been received on or after the fourth birthday.

  4. Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR):  Students are required to have two doses with the first dose received on or after the first birthday and the second dose required upon entry into kindergarten.
