• Immunization RequirementsImmunization Record

     

    All children attending school must have a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization.  This certificate must be brought to the school within 30 days of your child starting school.  No exceptions are made to this per South Carolina State Law. This certificate can be obtained from your child’s physician or from a county health department.  Upon bringing an immunization certificate to the school, the school nurse will review the number of vaccines and dates given.  If the received vaccines do not meet the state requirement, you will be notified.  An updated certificate will be required.  The link for a list of "Vaccines Needed For School Admission" can be found by clicking here.
     
    Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, all students entering seventh grade must receive or have already received a dose of Tdap vaccine on or after their seventh birthday to protect them from pertussis (whooping cough). Your child’s school will need a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that he or she has received this newly required Tdap vaccine.
