Before a child may start school in August, a completed immunization record must be on file. The month, day, and year of immunizations must be reflected. Children, entering school for the first time, must have immunizations verified on either a Virginia Form MCH-213G, public health department form, or an immunization document from a qualified licensed physician or licensed nurse practitioner (Click here for more information on immunizations).
Additionally, a copy of the student's comprehensive Virginia State Physical should be on file. The physical examination must be from a qualified licensed physician or licensed nurse practitioner, performed within the twelve months prior to the date the student enters kindergarten or elementary school. When a physical is completed for first-time entry to kindergarten, the School Entrance Physical Exam Form must be used and can be completed by visiting the Virginia Department of Education website. If transferring from another school, school division, or from out of state, a copy of such an examination must be in the previous school’s record and available upon request.

Immunizations for School-aged Children
As per the Code of Virginia and state legislation, the school division must comply with all requirements for immunizations as pertaining to school age children. There are specific regulations for DPT, Polio, MMR, Hepatitis B and Varicella. In July 2006, legislation was passed requiring a pertussis booster for students entering 6th grade. Lack of compliance with vaccine requirements can result in students being excluded from school until compliance, or a plan for compliance, is achieved.
