Immunization Shot Records K- 1st

Dear Parent or Guardian of an incoming Kindergarten or 1st grade student for the 2018-2019 school year,

 

The Texas Department of State Health Services has revised the immunization

requirements that take effect at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. The

following are the changes that are being implemented:

 

Kindergarten and 1st grade additional requirements

 

  • Hepatitis A – two doses of Hepatitis A with the first dose on or after the 1st
    birthday
  • MMR Vaccine – two doses of MMR vaccine with the 1st dose received on
    or after the first birthday
  • Varicella Vaccine – two doses of varicella vaccine, with the 1st dose on or
    after the 1st birthday (validation of disease accepted on separate form)

 

After reviewing your child’s immunization record, we have noted on the Health

Checklist the immunization(s) that will be required by your child to attend the first

day of school, 2018-2019.

 

It is our recommendation that these immunizations are obtained as soon as

possible and a copy of the physician validated immunization record is turned into

the school/clinic office for proper documentation.

 

The immunization changes are statewide, and we anticipate immunization clinics

to be quite busy.  Please note that if your 1st grader is already up-to-date on their immunizations, no additional shots are needed.

 

Thank you for your prompt attention,
