Texas Immunization Requirements

  • Texas school and child-care facility immunization requirements are determined by the state legislature and set by the Texas Department of State Health Services, in conjunction with the Texas Education Agency. Maintaining adequate immunization rates in schools is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of Texas children. 

    Students must present proof of immunization compliance at the time of enrollment according to Texas Administrative Code, Title 25 Health Services, Chapter 97, Subchapter B, Rules 97.61-77. These laws may be seen in their entirety at TDSHS Texas School & Child-Care Facility Immunization

    Students must have these vaccines before they may begin school; provisional enrollment and exemptions may be discussed with the campus nurse.

    Please review the State of Texas minimum vaccine requirements listed below for an up-to-date chart of required vaccine doses by age.
