Immunization Requirements-ALL 7th Graders

February 4, 2016

The Nevada State Board of Health mandates that a child may not be enrolled in grade 7 in a public school in this state unless the child has been immunized against Bordetella pertussis.  To satisfy the requirements of this subsection, a child must receive at least one dose of a vaccine against Bordetella pertussis after he or she obtained 10 years of age.

Please contact your health care provider to inquire if your child is meeting the above mandate.  If you need assistance in obtaining this immunization for your child, please contact your health care provider or Southern Nevada Health District to find out how to meet your child’s vaccination needs.  If your child  already received the T-dap vaccination or has a medical or religious exemption, please send your child to the Registration Office with an updated version of his/her immunization card or exemption.

Students will not be able to pick up a schedule at Back to School Day on August 14, 2015, or sit in class on the first day of school until the requirement is met.
