NJ Immunization Requirements


Specific to pre-school:  All students up to age 59 months attending pre-school must receive a flu vaccine between September 1 and December 31 of the current school year.  Failure to show documentation of flu vaccination will necessitate the student being excluded from school beginning January 1 through the remainder of the flu season (March 31). 

Flu vaccine information statement

Specific to Sixth grade students:  The Department of Health and Senior Services adopted the following regulations which began September 1, 2008:
 Students born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering Grade 6 will be required to receive a booster Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine. This requirement is designed to help reduce the number of outbreaks of pertussis (whooping cough) in previously vaccinated children in the 10-19 year age bracket.
Students born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering Grade 6 will be required to receive one dose of a meningococcal vaccine to reduce the risk of bacterial meningitis.
Specific to Seventh grade students:   New Jersey school districts are required under N.J.S.A. 18A:40-42 to annually distribute information about HPV to the parents or guardians of students in the seventh grade.
