School Immunization Requirements

Kansas immunization requirements and recommendations for the 2021-2022 school year are based on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. Information and related resources can be found here: https://www.kdhe.ks.gov/School-Information

The current recommended and minimum interval immunization schedules may be found at: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/
child-adolescent.html
. The best disease prevention is achieved by adhering to the recommended schedule. However, if a child falls behind, the minimum interval schedule is implemented.

The Immunization Requirements Cheat Sheet for the 2020-2021 School Year (School Bus Document) is a supplemental document shared by the Jefferson County Health Department. This document has not yet been updated for the 2021-2022 school year
