Texas state law requires students attending school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. We encourage parents to get their children vaccinated before the end-of-summer vaccination rush and before school starts. Students cannot go to school without the proper documentation for the required vaccines or a valid medical or conscientious exemption.
