Early Childhood through Grade 12
Minnesota Law requires students to be immunized against certain diseases or have a signed, legal medical or conscientious exemption kept in the student health record. These requirements apply to all students whether they attend public schools, private schools, or home schools. Appropriate documentation must be provided to the school health office in order for the student to enroll or remain enrolled.
If a parent or guardian objects to immunizations for either medical or personal reasons, a notarized statement is needed on the Student Immunization form. The notarized statement specifies the immunization(s) the child will not be receiving.
Download the Student Immunization Form or request the form from your child's school health office. This form is the official document for recording immunizations and objections to having your child immunized.
Specific Vaccine Requirements
FALL 2020 Update: Starting in the 2020-21 school year, 12th graders will be required to have a 2nd dose of the meningococcal vaccine.
To see all vaccine-specific requirements for each grade and complete details on immunization requirements for students in early childhood programs through grade 12 for this school year, go to "Are Your Kids Ready for School?".
Call your school nurse if you have questions about your child's immunization requirements.
