The state is updating five of it's vaccine requirements for students -- it will mainly affect kids entering Kindergarten and 7th grade.
The changes will update the Heptatitis A, MMR, Chicken Pox, T-Dap, and meningicoccal vaccines.
Kindergartners must now have two doses of the Hepatitis vaccine, as well as two doses of the chicken pox vaccine. Seventh graders need two doses of the chicken pox vaccine, and two doses of T-Dap -- which is a combination vaccine of tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis vaccines -- plus, one dose of the meningicoccal vaccine.
Nancy Sharp, LISD: "We want to make sure that when students are in that kind of a population around other students, that everyone is immunized, and that just helps the spread of illness. And we want them to be well and in school learning."
The policy begins August 1st. Remember, your child will not be able to attend school if they're not up-to-date.
