Student Immunization Resources

In accordance with current Florida law, school districts already develop and disseminate a local parent guide, consistent with the Florida Department of Education guidelines that describes what parents need to know about their child’s educational progress and how they can help their child to succeed in school.

Required immunizations and the recommended immunization schedule are located on the Florida Department of Health web site at http://www.immunizeflorida.org/schoolguide.pdf. For required immunizations, scroll down and click on Immunization and Record Requirements. To access the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended immunization schedule, click here.
