Texas Vaccine Requirements

State law requires students in Texas schools to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable
diseases. This letter is to inform you of where you can obtain information about which vaccines your
child needs to attend school and to remind you to get your child vaccinated early— before the busy
back-to-school season. Getting your child vaccinated not only protects your child’s health, but also that
of your community.
To determine the specific vaccines that are required for your child’s grade level, please refer to the Texas
Minimum State Vaccine Requirements for Students in Grades K-12. This document is available on the
Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Immunization Unit website at
