Pennsylvania School Immunization Requirements

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is changing school immunization  regulations beginning in August 2017. The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in the commonwealth are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health now requires the following immunizations for entry into school and continued attendance.

Children in ALL grades (K-12) need the following immunizations for attendance:
  • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis* (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose given)
  • 2 doses of measles, mumps, rubella**
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity

Seventh through 12 grade ADDITIONAL immunization requirements for attendance:

  • 2 doses meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)

           -  First dose is given 11-15 years of age; a second dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade.

           -  If the dose was given at 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required.

  • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)

 

* Usually given as DTP or DTaP or if medically advisable, DT or Td

** Usually given as MMR

 

Exemptions to school laws for immunizations are:

  •  medical reasons;
  •  religious beliefs; and
  •  philosophical/strong moral or ethical conviction

If your child is exempt from immunizations, he or she may be removed from school during an outbreak.  Pennsylvania's school immunization requirements can be found in 28 Pa.CODE CH.23 (School Immunization). Contact your healthcare provided or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH for more information.
