Dear Parents,

We welcome you and your new kindergartner to _____________ Elementary.  We are happy to have your child in our school.  We hope this information will help you have a good experience at school.  This letter informs you of the Utah Law that deals with immunizations.

To attend Utah schools, students must have a certified birth certificate (not a hospital issued birth certificate) and an appropriate immunization record from a licensed physician or health department as required under Utah code Section 53A-1-303.

     The following immunizations are required:

  • 5 doses of DtaP/DT/DT  (4 are acceptable if the 4th dose is given on or after the 4th birthday). Or
  • 4 or more doses of Polio vaccine (3 are acceptable if the 3rd dose is given on or after the 4th birthday.
  • 2 MMR vaccines (1 MMR and 1 measles is acceptable).  The first dose of measles or MMR must be given on or after the 1st birthday; a 3rd dose is required if the 1st dose is given before the 1st birthday.
  • 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine (students born after July 1, 1993).
  • 2 doses of Hepatitis A vaccine (students born after July 1, 1996).
  • 1 dose Varicella (Chicken Pox) given after 1st birthday.  History of disease acceptable, parent must sign verification statement on school immunization record.

To attend school, all children must be properly immunized or on a current schedule.  No grace periods are allowed.  Proper proof of immunizations is required so they can start school with their classmates.  The first few days of school are very critical for the child and the teacher.  Thank you for your cooperation.
