The law requires students through grade 12 to be immunized according to their age/grade by the beginning of the school year.
Immunization is a shared responsibility
Parents are required to have their children immunized on schedule and keep accurate records. If a student is unable to receive immunizations for medical, religious or personal conviction reasons, a waiver must be signed.
Schools are required to keep records and review annually the Immunization Law (s. 252.04 Wis. Stats.).
When students do not meet the requirements of the law, parents are notified by a legal notice.
– Keep a copy of you child’s immunization record.
– Notify your child’s school each time your child receives an immunization.
