New Immunization Requirements

  • Immunization Requirements  


     All students born on or after January 1, 2002 and entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade in Georgia need proof of an adolescent pertussis (whooping cough) booster vaccination (called “Tdap”) and an adolescent meningococcal vaccination (“MCV4”). Proof of both vaccinations must be documented on the Georgia Immunization Certificate (Form 3231). All Georgia public and private schools are affected by the law, excluding homeschool students.
