To attend the 7th grade, a student must have written proof of receiving the following immunizations:

  • Tdap
  • 2 Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
  • 3 Hepatitis B
  • 2 Varicella (chickenpox) – history of disease is acceptable, a parent must sign the verification statement on the school immunization record.
  • 1 Meningococcal
  • 4 Polio (3 doses, if 3rd dose was given on/after the 4th birthday)
  • 2 Hepatitis A
  • 5 DTaP/DT (4 doses of DTaP, if 4th dose given on/after the 4th birthday; 3 doses of Td, if starting series after age 7 years with a single dose of Tdap preferred as the first dose)

With the exception of Tdap and Meningococcal, a child may be allowed to attend school “conditionally” if at least one dose of each required immunization has been completed and the child is currently on schedule to receive the remaining immunizations. The remaining immunizations must be completed on schedule for the child to remain in attendance.

For children whose parents claim an exemption to immunization for medical, religious, or personal reasons, an appropriate Utah Department of Health Exemption form must be completed and presented to the child’s school and a copy kept in their cumulative file.

For questions regarding your child’s immunization status, contact your child’s health care provider, your local health department or the Immunization Hotline 1-800-275-0659.
