IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR SCHOOL?

Make sure your child is ready to head back to school - we're now scheduling for back-to-school immunizations and sports physicals.

Minnesota immunization requirements

Use this list as a guide to determine which vaccines are required to enroll in child care, early childhood programs and school (public or private).

We also encourage additional vaccines at various ages. You can read more about those by clicking here.

 

Find your child’s age/grade level and look to see if your child had the number of shots shown by the 'x' next to each vaccine.
