Immunization Requirements

State Law requires that all children be completely immunized before attending school. Arrangements for immunizations can be made with your family physician or the county health department. Children who have not been immunized will be excluded from school in the event of an epidemic. Special forms, available in the office, must be completed for exception to the immunization requirement.

Effective January 1, 1992, a stronger state immunization law requires that we suspend from school any child whose immunization record is not up-to-date (A.R.S.?15-873). This new law is in response to the large increase in vaccine-preventable disease in Arizona. You will be notified by our office if your child’s medical records are not in compliance with the law.
