DCSD IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

Kindergartners and new students enrolling in the Douglas County School District:

Nevada law requires that all children have up to date immunizations and boosters to be enrolled in a public school. We are required to remove children from school who are not fully immunized or have incomplete records. The immunizations below are required before your child can be admitted to school or an appointment card with the scheduled date for immunization(s) must be attached to this form.

DTP/DT/DTAP: 4 doses are required. A 5th dose must be given if the 4th dose was administered before the 4th birthday.

IPV/Polio: 3 doses are required. A 4th dose must be given if the 3rd dose was administered before the 4th birthday.

MMR/Measles Mumps Rubella: 2 doses are required. Ideally, the 1st dose is after the 1st birthday and the 2nd dose is after the 4th birthday.

Hepatitis A: 2 doses are required and must follow the ACIP schedule.

Hepatitis B: 3 doses are required and must follow the ACIP schedule.

Varicella (Chicken Pox): 2 doses are required. Ideally, the 1st dose is after the 1st birthday and the 2nd dose is after the 4th birthday. If students have had the chickenpox disease, the vaccination is not required.
