Immunization Information

IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

 

State law requires children to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases to attend school in Texas.  Getting your child vaccinated protects your child's health and that of the community. 

 

Students cannot attend school without the appropriate documentation for the required vaccines or a valid exemption. (Texas Administrative Code §97.63)

 

If you need help in getting your child immunized, Dallas County Health and Human Services have several Immunization Clinics located in the Dallas area.  This link will provide you with locations and hours of operation.  Dallas County Health and Human Services Immunization Clinics
