Changes in Texas Immunization Requirements

Texas Department of State Health Services - On March 5, 2009, the Executive Commissioner on Health & Human Services approved several revisions to the “immunization Requirements for Children and Students in Texas Public and Private Schools.”

The changes to the requirement were made in order to update the Texas elementary and secondary school immunization requirements so that they adhere more closely to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). These changes include:

  • Hepatitis A Vaccine: Beginning August 1, 2009, all students entering kindergarten, statewide, will be required to have 2 doses of Hepatitis A vaccine.
  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine: Beginning August 1, 2009, all students entering kindergarten, statewide, will be required to have 2 doses of Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine.
  • Varicella Vaccine: Beginning August 1, 2009, all students entering kindergarten and 7th grade, statewide, will be required to have 2 doses of varicella vaccine. A written statement from a parent (or legal gaudian or managing conservator), school nurse, or physician attesting to a child’s positive history of varicella disease (chickenpox), or of varicella immunity, is acceptable in lieu of either dose of varicella vaccine.
