Required Immunizations

All students must be immunized in accordance with state law before entering Texas schools. For questions or more information on immunizations, please contact your student's school nurse.

Vaccines are available from doctors' offices, the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services Department, 281-446-4222, or the Houston Department of Health and Human Services, 713-794-9320.


For children who need medical exemptions, a written statement by the physician should be submitted to the school annually. Parents/guardians choosing the exemption for reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, should visit Immunize Texas for instructions.

ALL IMMUNIZATION RECORDS, when turned in (including electronic My Chart records), must be signed or stamped by the physician or his/her designee or public health personnel.


Affidavits regarding varicella are available. Please print the varicella proof form.
