Requirements for School Entry

Immunization Requirements for School Entry

Proof of receiving the immunizations must be provided to the school prior to attending the first day of school.

All required/recommended vaccines can reduce the disease burden in school-aged children, thus helping to assure that students will be in school ready to learn.  Completely immunized school aged children are vital in protecting other more vulnerable populations from the devastating effects of the diseases that immunizations can prevent.

Health Assessment

Kansas law requires that all students, eight and under, who are enrolling in a Kansas school for the first time present health assessment information. The assessment needs to have been conducted within the last 12 months before school entry.
