Immunizations Required for School Entry

Immunizations Required for School Entry

  • DTP/DTaP/Dt/TD: 5 doses, but 4 doses meets requirement for ages 4-6 if at least one was on or after the 4th birthday.
  • Polio: 4 doses, but 3 doses are enough for ages 4-6 if at least one was given after the 4th birthday.
  • Hepatitis B: 3 doses 
  • MMR: 2 doses 
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox): 2 doses or licensed physician documented varicella disease or immunity.


Even with current school closures, immunization requirements for admission to schools in California for the 2021-2022 and the 2022-2023 school year remain in place. 

Understanding that the COVID-19 pandemic may require physicians to reschedule appointments, please contact your child’s pediatrician to schedule an appointment for your child to receive their required immunizations with ample time before schools re-opening. Your child will need to be current on all required immunization before they may physically attend school. We look forward to having your child in our schools.
