Notification of Inoculation Requirements

Hepatitis B and Varicelle (chickenpox) vaccines are required for Kindergarten school entry.

The State of Kansas school immunization law requires that all students’ immunizations be current when they enter school. If your child does not have all of the required immunizations when they enroll, they then have 90 days to comply with this requirement or they may be excluded from the school setting. This law is especially applicable to new students, beginning kindergarten students and students who have not had a diphtheria/tetanus booster for ten years. Required immunizations, depending on the age of the student include

  • 4 or 5 DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus)
  • 1 DT (diptheria/tetanus)
  • 3 or 4 Polio
  • 2 MMR’s (measles, mumps, and rubella)
  • 3 Hepatitis B
  • 2 Varicella

Preschool under the age of 5

  • 3 Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib)
  • 4 Pneumococcal conjugate (PCV7)
