Immunizations

All students enrolling in Kansas schools are required to provide the school nurse with proof of immunization record documenting that the following vaccinations and boosters have been administered by a licensed physician or local health department. (Link to Board policies)

  • Diptheria
  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles (Rubeola)
  • Mumps
  • Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
  • Polio
  • Rubella (German Measles)
  • Tetanus
  • Varicella (Chickenpox), unless proof of prior Varicella disease by a physician is provided.

Students must have proof of having received all required vaccinations before entering school. Students who fail to provide the documentation required by law may be excluded from school by the Superintendent until statutory requirements are satisfied. Notice of exclusion shall be given to the parents/guardians as prescribed by law. Students who are not immunized against a particular disease(s) will be excluded from school during any outbreak.

Kansas School Immunization Law does not permit exemptions to vaccination solely on the grounds of personal or philosophical beliefs.

The following constitutes proof of immunization:

  • Kansas Certificate of Immunization
  • Kansas Immunization Record
  • Passport or similar official governmental document that clearly denotes the number and kind of immunizations received and the dates thereof.
  • Signed statement by a physician, nurse, or public health official that indicates the kind, number, and dates of immunization received.

"Health Assessment" forms are to be filled out by a parent/guardian each year. Please be sure to include all information that your school nurse needs to care for your child on that form each year.
