SPOKANE, Wash. - Parents in Spokane have until Friday to vaccinate their children, after which point their kids will be asked to stay home from school.
All immunizations and paperwork must be up to date and turned into the student’s school by October 11. If parents are unable to provide proof of immunization, the student will not be allowed to return to class until the paperwork is submitted.
There are several immunizations to get your child caught up on:
- Hepatitis B
- Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR)
- Chickenpox (Varicella)
Requirements for the immunizations are different across grade levels, and more information can be found in a Washington State Department of Health document here.
Due to a new state law, personal and philosophical exemptions from these vaccines are currently off the table.
