School Vaccinations

School, Child Care, and University Vaccine Requirements

Keeping children healthy and in the classroom benefits everyone. As kids begin to grow, they may be around other kids and adults who may or may not be vaccinated. One of the best ways to keep your child healthy is by keeping up to date with immunizations.

It’s the law

Nevada law requires immunizations for child care, school, and university entry unless excused because of religious belief or medical condition. The requirements are for beginning kindergartners, students entering the 7th grade and 12th grade, and university students and any student new to a Nevada school district.

Please note, as of the 2022-2023 school year, a student enrolling in 7th grade and 12th grade in a Nevada public, private, or charter school must receive an immunization against Neisseria meningitidis in the form of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY).

University immunization requirements

Per Nevada state law, unless excused because of religious belief or medical condition, students must submit proof of immunity to tetanus, diphtheria (Td or Tdap), measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) before enrolling. Those younger than 23 and enrolled as a freshman must also submit proof of immunity against meningitis. Vaccination with at least one dose of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY) on or after age 16 will satisfy this requirement.

University is defined as any university within the Nevada System of Higher Education or any private post-secondary educational institution.
