• Immunization Requirements

    Arizona state law, (A.R.S. 15-873) governs immunization requirements. To attend school, student immunizations must be current; that is to say no further immunizations are required at the time of entry. Documented proof of immunizations must be provided to the school. The following immunizations are required:

    • DTap/DPT/DT/TD
    • Tdap (students 11 years of age and older in grades 6, 7 and 8)
    • Polio

    A student is considered to be in compliance if he/she has met the criteria of the immunization schedule as recommended by the Department of Health Services or is actively in the process of meeting criteria as evidenced by having one (1) dose of each of the immunizations and having established a schedule to complete the requirements. If the schedule is not adhered to, a student may be suspended. A Request for Exemption to Immunization may be signed by the parent/guardian for medical or personal beliefs. Homeless students will be referred to the liaison for the homeless if assistance is needed to meet immunization requirements.
