Getting them up to date now will protect against vaccine preventable disease, and ensure that they will not be excluded from school and to ensure class placement.
Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up to date immunizations to your child’s school, prior to the beginning of the next school year.
No students will be allowed to attend school without up to date immunizations.
