Update on Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 97, §97.63:  Immunization Requirements in Child-care Facilities, Pre-Kindergarten, Early Childhood Programs, and Texas Elementary and Secondary Schools

The Texas Department of State Health Services, Immunization Branch, is in the process of finalizing rules in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Title 25, Chapter 97, Section §97.63. 

No new vaccines have been added to the proposed rule; and, the adopted rule is estimated to be complete by June 2015.  Current requirements were renewed to avoid lapses in requirements by school years and to clean up non-substantive language.  Once final, the Immunization Branch will distribute the 2015-2016 Texas Minimum State Vaccine Requirements for Students Grades K-12.  The schedule will be made available on the Immunization Branch website at www.ImmunizeTexas.com, under the School and Child-Care Section.  The department is not proposing new vaccine requirements for the 2015-16 school year.
