Immunization Records

This is a summary of the minimum vaccination requirements for Texas students, according to the Texas Department of Health. The state has changed the requirements for hepatitis B and chickenpox vaccinations, effective Tuesday. Schools will require immunization records, and some will require transcripts mailed from the previous school.

Click the name of the disease for more information on its symptoms, preventions and common treatments.

Diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis
Four doses required for children 6 or younger; three doses required for children 7 and older; at least one of those doses must be the month before or the month of the child's fourth birthday or after age 4. Tetanus-diphtheria every 10 years after age 4 booster; no pertussis vaccine required after age 5.

Polio
Three doses required, and the last dose must be received the month before or the month of the child's fourth birthday or after age 4; not required for students 18 and older.

Measles *
Two doses required; one dose on or after the first birthday. A second dose of the vaccine is due at age 5 for children born on or after Sept. 2, 1991. Children born before Sept. 2, 1991, need to have the immunization before they turn 12.

Rubella **
One dose required on or after the first birthday.

Mumps *
One dose required on or after the first birthday.

Tuberculosis skin test with reading
Required by the Austin school district, any time before enrollment is acceptable. Students with positive tests must show proof of evaluation. Skin tests must be read or validated by physician, clinic or school nurse. Cards for family reading are not acceptable.

Hib CV
(Haemophilus influenza type B conjugate vaccine) -- One dose on or after 15 months for all children up to 5 years old unless a schedule for primary series and boosters was met at 15 months.

Hepatitis B
Three doses are required for all students age 5 and older who were born on or after Sept. 2, 1992. Effective Tuesday, children born between Sept. 2, 1988, and Sept. 2, 1992, must have another series at 12.

Chickenpox (varicella vaccine)
Children born on or after Sept. 2, 1994, must have one dose of the varicella vaccine on or after their first birthday, or if born between Sept. 2, 1988, and Sept. 2, 1994, they must have one dose of the vaccine by 12. If the child has had chickenpox, a history must be provided by a parent, guardian or physician.



* Histories of measles and mumps or a blood test to confirm immunity are acceptable instead of a vaccine but must be verified by a physician's statement. Students deficient in immunizations will not be allowed to attend school until they bring an updated immunization document.

** Documentation of a blood test confirming immunity to the rubella disease will substitute for the rubella vaccine requirement.
