Immunization Requirements

Important message from Metro Health about the measles immunization

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.
