Wisconsin School Immunization Requirements
(Fall 2017:  Students entering 6th Grade will need the Tdap vaccine and Kindergarten students will need their Kindergarten shots)
 
The Student Immunization Law requires that all students through Grade 12 meet a minimum number of required immunizations prior to school entrance. These requirements can be waived only for health, religious, or personal conviction reasons.

In past years, thousands of Wisconsin children caught diseases such as measles, pertussis (whooping cough), and rubella, and many were left with severe disabilities. The Student Immunization Law was passed in order to keep these and other vaccine-preventable diseases from returning and harming the health of our children.
