Immunization Requirements

Immunizations required to complete May 2015 registration

Registration packets for returning SAISD students for the 2015-16 school year have gone home and are due back on May 21, 2015. Per Texas law, students must be current with their immunizations to attend school. 

Spring registration will not be considered completed unless students have  received immunizations that will be needed to start the 2015-16 school year.

Download dates and information for three immunization clinics, offered via University Health System’s mobile clinic, will be held in May to allow parents to get their child’s immunizations updated for spring registration. 

Students entering kindergarten and the 7th grade may need additional immunizations in order to be current with the immunization requirements. Please review the letters that were included in your registration packet for detailed information.

If students in other grades need additional immunizations to be in compliance with the requirements, school nurses will send notifications to their parents.
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my child need to be immunized?

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 right documentation for the required vaccines or a valid medical or conscientious exemption.
