Getting Ready for School? Check Immunization Records
Many children in our communities are not fully immunized. If a child is not fully immunized, he remains at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases such as Pertussis (whooping cough). In 2006, there were 741 Pertussis cases reported in the state of Utah. Many of these cases occurred in children and adolescents.
Utah law requires that children be fully immunized to enroll and attend school. Fully immunized means the child has had the correct number of doses of each vaccination AND that the intervals between doses is correct. If the interval between doses has been too short, the child is not fully immunized and will need another dose.
If a child’s immunization is not up-to-date at registration, he or she may still be able to enroll and attend school IF the child receives the first dose of each vaccination and is on schedule to receive the next dose. The student may also attend school if he or she presents a medical, religious or personal exemption certificate available at the Southwest Utah Public Health Department.
Immunization data is maintained at the child’s doctor’s office and may also be housed on Utah’s statewide immunization database system (USIIS). Parents provide the school with medical documentation of a child’s immunization when the student registers for school. The information then becomes part of each student’s permanent school record. Parents should also notify the school each time the student’s immunization record is updated. Recent improvements in the Washington County School District’s Powerschool database will allow the schools, in the future, to keep better track of each student’s immunization.
If the student’s immunization record shows that he or she needs a particular vaccination in order to be fully immunized, parents will be notified by letter. It is particularly important that parents who have received a letter from the school take their child to get the needed vaccination before the student registers in August, so that he or she can attend classes on the first day of school. Doctor's offices and the public health department are working collaboratively with the school district to meet this temporarily increased demand for vaccinations.
Making sure children’s immunizations are up-to-date is an important part of getting ready for school this year! For more information, you may contact LuAnne Forrest at the WCSD Student Services Dept. at 435-673-3553. The following is a listing of immunization requirements:
