  • Four or five doses of DTaP
  • Four or five doses of IPV
  • Two doses of MMR
  • Three doses of Hep B
  • One Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap)
  • Two doses of Varicella (kindergarten effective with 2008–2009 school year, then an additional grade is added each year thereafter). Varicella vaccine is not required if there is a history of varicella disease documented by the health care provider.

Additional Immunization Requirements for 7th Grade Entry 

Effective with 2009–2010 school year (then an additional grade is added each year thereafter), in addition to compliance with all other immunization requirements, children entering, attending, or transferring to the seventh grade in Florida schools must complete the following:

Florida Health School Immunization Requirements


Students who are entering in Kindergarten, or the State of Florida, must provide  evidence of a medical exam completed no less than 12 months prior to the child's school entry date. As long as the medical exam meets this 12-month requirement, parents may submit this information on the School-Entry Health Exam DH 3040 or provide a copy of the exam obtained from their current physician before moving to Florida.


The Florida Department of Education requires a Scoliosis Screening for all 6th graders in accordance with Section 1003.22(4), Florida Statutes, and State Department of Health Rule 64F-6.003, Florida Administrative Code. Please have your child receive this screening through their General Practitioner or Pediatrician and return the Scoliosis Screening Release Form  to our school office.
