PA School Immunization Requirements
Children in Kindergarten through Grade 12 must have at least the first dose of all the required vaccinations or schools can keep them from attending. This requirement, as well as additional immunization regulations, help to ensure that children in the commonwealth are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.

If your child isn’t up to date on their vaccinations, you’ll have five days from the start of school to:
• Get the next required dose.
• Provide a medical plan to get fully up-to-date.
Don’t wait; get your child up-to-date with their vaccinations today!

School nurses with immunization requirement questions can contact:
