Immunization Requirements

Immunization Requirements Information

Immunization Updates

All Washington State Public Schools are required to meet the new student immunization guidelines from the Washington State Department of Health which were implemented in the Fall of 2020.

Parents are required to provide a medically verified immunization record for their student. Medically verified is defined as: 

  • A Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) printed from the Immunization Information System (IIS) or from "MyIR" - databases that medical providers often use, OR;
  • A physical copy of the CIS form with a healthcare provider signature, OR;
  • A physical copy of the CIS with accompanying medical immunization records from a healthcare provider verified and signed by a Pullman Public Schools nurse.

We encourage families to plan ahead! Please consider reaching out for your student's medical provider soon to request a copy of immunization records. They should be submitted to the nurse at the district office or you may drop them off with your student's school.

Immunization records are required and students will be ineligible to attend school if appropriate records are not provided.

 

 

 

From the Department of Health:

"Children may begin school or child care only if they received all of the required immunizations that are due to receive and submitted medically verified records on or before the first day of attendance.

If additional immunizations are needed after receiving all immunizations they are eligible to receive before starting school, children may start school or childcare in conditional status and remain until the next dose becomes due. Children will then have 30 calendar days to turn in updated records showing they received the missing doses. If additional doses are due, conditional status continues until all required immunizations are complete. If the 30 days expire without updated records, the child must be excluded from further attendance."
