Each School of Science and Technology campus follows the minimum state vaccine requirements for students grade K-12 set by the Texas Health and Human Services Department. Immunization records must be submitted with registration paperwork to your Campus Registrar.
Footnotes1. Receipt of the dose up to (and including) 4 days before the birthday will satisfy the school entry immunization requirement.
2. Serologic evidence of infection or serologic confirmation of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, or varicella is acceptable in place of vaccine.
3. Previous illness may be documented with a written statement from a physician, school nurse, or the child’s parent or guardian containing wording such as: “This is to verify that (name of student) had varicella disease (chickenpox) on or about (date) and does not need varicella vaccine.” This written statement will be acceptable in place of any and all varicella vaccine doses required.
