There’s a long list of immunizations. Are all of them really required?
Immunization requirements are determined by the State Department of Health. The DTaP, Polio, MMR, and Hep B immunizations are required. Varicella is required unless your child has had the chicken pox disease. Meningococcal, pneumococcal, HPV, and Hep A immunizations are optional. If you do not want your child to be immunized due to religious reasons, you must sign a “Religious Exemption” form, which is available through the school infirmary.
