Immunization Information

Don't wait vaccinate

Back to school is the perfect time to make sure you children are up to date with their vaccines.  PLEASE NOTE:  All students (in person or virtual) are required to have their immunizations.

Virginia Department of Health Requirements for School Enrollment
State laws require that children receive a comprehensive physical examination and be adequately immunized appropriate to the child's age before entering public kindergarten or elementary school. The physical examination must be completed no longer than one year before the child's entry into kindergarten or elementary school. Accommodations for meeting the immunization requirements may be made for students who are military dependents, homeless, or in foster care. The School Entrance Health Form and Certificate of Religious Exemption are available from your child's school or may be accessed at the Virginia Department of Health Web site.

In April 2018, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) changed the minimum recommended age for the tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) adolescent booster vaccine from 10 to 11 years. As a result, a routine adolescent booster dose of Tdap should not be administered to students younger than 11 years of age.

To align with current ACIP recommendations, the 2019 General Assembly passed HB 2215 that changes the grade in which students receive Tdap vaccine from sixth to seventh grade. Students who received a Tdap immunization at age ten will not need another Tdap vaccine to enter seventh grade. This legislation became effective July 1, 2019

You can receive free immunizations from the Roanoke City Health Department.  Please call the Health Department at (540) 283-5050 to make an appointment.
