The decision to vaccinate our children is a highly personal one that demands research be done. Here at Power2Parent, we encourage parents to exercise their rights with regards to making the decision that is right for each child and family.

Children attending public school within the Clark County School District must provide proof of vaccination upon enrollment, unless they are exempt based on religious belief or medical condition.

Though immediate requirements vary based on age and grade level, students must have the following vaccinations to enroll:

  •  DTaP/DTP* (5 doses)  *Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis- version for infants and young children
  •  Tdap* (1 dose)  *Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis- version for older children and adults
  •  Hepatitis A (2 doses)
  •  Hepatitis B (3 doses)
  •  MMR* (2 doses)  *Measles, Mumps, Rubella
  •  MCV4* (1-2 doses)  *Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine
  •  Polio/IPV/OPV (3-4 doses)
  •  Varicella/Chicken Pox (2 doses)

See this Quick Immunization Reference Guide for the 2024/2025 school year for details regarding the timing for each vaccine.

A number of vaccine resources are listed on the CCSD Health Services/Parent Information page here.

The U.S. government’s official Vaccine Information Statements can be found via the Center for Disease Control here.

If all or some vaccinations are not the right course of action for your family, a Religious Immunization Exemption Certificate can be found here. This form must be on file with your child’s school in lieu of a shot record.

Of note: The Covid-19 vaccine is not required, though proof of vaccination is encouraged by CCSD. The flu vaccine is also encouraged but not required.
