7th Grade Immunization Requirements
To attend the 7th grade, a student must have written proof of receiving the following immunizations:
- 2 Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
- 3 Hepatitis B
- 2 Varicella (chickenpox)
- 1 Meningococcal (Only Meningococcal Conjugate vaccine given after 10 years of age is acceptable for 7th-grade school entry)
- 4 Polio
- 2 Hepatitis A
- 5 DTaP/DT
Proof of immunity to disease(s) can be accepted in place of vaccination only if a document from a health care provider stating the student previously contracted the disease is presented to the school.
For children whose parents claim an exemption to immunization for medical, religious, or personal reasons, their legally responsible individual must complete an online immunization education module at immunize.utah.gov or in-person consultation at a local health department. A copy of the certificate must be presented to the school or child care official.
For a medical exemption from the required immunizations, a completed vaccination exemption form and a written notice signed by a licensed healthcare provider must be presented to the school.
For questions regarding your child’s immunization status, contact your child’s health care provider, your local health department or the Immunization Hotline 1-800-275-0659.
