In 2020 the General Assembly passed House Bill 1090. This bill amends the minimum vaccination requirements for students attending a public or private elementary, middle or high school.
Per the passage of this bill, this legislation becomes effective July 1, 2021, and amends the Code of Virginia § 32.1-46.A.4 to require:
- Two doses of properly spaced human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (for males and females). The first dose shall be administered before the child enters the seventh grade. (Per this bill, the parent or guardian, may elect for the child not to receive the HPV vaccine, after reviewing educational materials approved by the Board of Health).
- Two properly spaced doses of hepatitis A vaccine (HAV). The first dose shall be administered at
age 12 months or older.
- Two properly spaced doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). The first dose shall be administered prior to entry to the seventh grade. The second dose shall be administered prior to entry to the twelfth grade
Parents of rising 7th grade students, please remember a Tdap booster is also required for students entering 7th grade. If a dose of Tdap has been administered after the age of 7 years, the Tdap booster requirement for rising 7th graders has been met and another dose is not required.
Proof of your child having received all required immunizations must be submitted to your child’s school prior to August, 26, 2021 for your child to be allowed to attend school.
