Changes to school immunization requirements for the 2016-2017 school year include:
· Students in kindergarten, second, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, 10th, and 11th grades must show proof of having received two doses of varicella. Students in all other grades must show proof of one dose of varicella. The two-dose rule formerly applied only to students entering kindergarten, sixth, seventh, ninth, and tenth grades.
· Students entering sixth, seventh, and 12thgrades must show proof of immunization for meningococcal. This immunization formerly was required only of sixth- and 12th-graders.
These vaccination revisions are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. IDPH’s Immunization Quick Reference Guide provides additional details about the 2016-17 requirements.
