Immunization Chart Links:
Every student in Alabama must present and keep a current Certificate of Immunization (blue slip) when enrolling in school. The student will not be enrolled until the blue slip, a Religious Exemption or Medical Exemption is presented to the school.
All students 11 and older entering the sixth grade in Alabama schools must have a tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. This is required because of the change from tetanus-diphtheria (Td) to (Tdap) vaccine. The Tdap vaccine will protect adolescents from pertussis and keep them from spreading disease to siblings, other family members and other students.
**Shots may be obatianed at Local Health Departments or Doctor's offices.
