Immunization Requirements


Immunization Resources: Texas Department of State Health Services

6th and 7th grade parents: KISD follows the recommendations from The Texas Department of State Health Services which may change from time to time. Check with your physician to make sure your child’s immunizations are up to date. YOUR CHILD MUST HAVE UP TO DATE IMMUNIZATION RECORDS ON FILE WITH THE CLINIC PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Currently all 7th graders must have the following immunizations: 

Meningococcal Vaccine

Varicella Vaccine: 2 doses are now required prior to the 7th grade. If your child had the Chicken pox disease the Varicella immunization is not necessary. You will need to fill out a form stating that your child had the disease.

Tdap booster. This immunization is due if it has been more than 5 years since your last immunization that contained tetanus.

8th grade parents: If your child is transferring from a school outside of Texas or is being retained in the 8th grade, the above immunizations are also required before beginning school. Students transferring from another Texas school should have already received the State required immunizations. Please check with your physician or school clinic.
