School Vaccines

Children entering Kindergarten must have completed all CDC-recommended early childhood vaccines including 2-doses of MMR (measles-mumps-rubella), 2-doses of Varivax (chicken pox), and 2-doses of Hepatitis A.

Children ages 11-12 are required to receive the Tetanus-Whooping Cough booster (known as Tdap) as well as the first Meningococcal Meningitis vaccine (known as Menactra); in addition, while not required in Georgia, it is highly recommended for your child to receive the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine series to protect against cervical cancer in women, genital warts in men and women, and throat cancer in men and women.

Form 3231 (printed by the practice from data entered into the GRITS-Georgia Immunization Registry) is required for entrance into day care, preschools, kindergarten and middle school as well as for any child who is newly enrolled in school in the State of Georgia. This form is provided at the time of your child’s well-visit and immunizations.
