All students (kindergarten through 12th grade) must complete their immunizations--including boosters--and submit an official record of these to the school nurse.
Starting in September 2001, all 7th grade students must show proof of immunization dates for the Hepatitis B series, their second MMR booster, and Diphtheria/Tetanus booster. (MN Statute 121A.15)
Health Department Information
The MN State immunization law requires all students entering Kindergarten and 7th Grade to receive the required immunizations.
For Kindergarten students, a second MNR is required. A chickenpox vaccine is required if your child has not had the disease. Also, they will need the Hepatitis B series, plus DTap, and polio boosters.
7th Grade students will need to show proof of a current TD booster, 2nd MMR, Hepatitis B series, plus the chickenpox vaccine or proof of the disease.
If these immunizations are contrary to your beliefs or there is a medical exemption, you must complete the appropriate forms. They are available from the school nurse or at a clinic.
Students who do not comply with the state law will be excluded from school.
