Immunizations - Healthy Children Learn Better
 

Arizona State law ARS 15-803 states that all children must have up to date immunization records on file at school to be able to attend.
School Immunization Requirements - PDF file

Verification for all immunizations must include the child’s name, birth date, type of vaccine, date of vaccine, and name of doctor/agency administering vaccine. Records must be signed or stamped by the agency providing the immunizations. A previous school record is also acceptable (does not include preschools). Record must be provided before school starts or at the time of enrollment. Immunizations must be up-to-date in order to begin school.

For preschool requirements please check with your neighborhood school’s health office.

Many immunization clinics are available in the area that may be free of charge. Please remember to take all of your child's immunization records for the clinic staff to review.
Some of the clinics will not give immunizations without a school referral form, or a complete record of previous immunizations. Parental history without documentation is not acceptable.
