Vaccination Requirements for 2020-2021

Aug 21, 2020 | Community Relations

School vaccination rules remain in effect for the 2020-2021 school year. Before students can attend school, student vaccines should be up to date, in the process of receiving vaccines, or have a valid exemption on file when school starts in the fall. 

School vaccination rules are in effect regardless of whether the education is received via virtual learning or on campus per the Texas Department of State Health Services. 

Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 97.62 describes the conditions under which individuals can seek exemptions from Texas immunization requirements. Exclusions from compliance are allowable on an individual basis for medical contraindications, active duty with the armed forces of the United States, and reasons of conscience, including a religious belief.

For a list of vaccine requirements please contact your school nurse or see your child's campus nurse webpage.
