Immunization Requirements Resources

School Immunization Requirements

In order to continue to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases throughout adolescence, several adolescent immunizations have been added to the school attendance immunization requirements. All West Virginia students entering 7th grade must have one dose of the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) and one dose of the meningococcal vaccine. Students entering 12th grade must also have at least one dose of the Tdap vaccine and a second dose of the meningococcal vaccine. If the first dose of the meningococcal vaccine was received after age 16, then only one dose of this vaccine is required. For more information about school immunization requirements, click here to visit the WV Division of Immunization Services’ website.

Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective preventive measures available and, as such, have saved countless lives. These immunization requirements not only lengthen the time for which immunized students are protected from vaccine-preventable diseases, but also continue to help protect individuals who cannot be immunized due to medical reasons.
