What immunizations are required?

Nevada law requires immunizations for school entry unless excused because of religious belief or medical condition. Kindergartners and other children enrolling in a Nevada school for the first time must provide schools with an official Immunization Record showing that the child has received the required number of doses of:

  • Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTap)
  • Polio (IPV)
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox)

Students entering 7th Grade must have been vaccinated against Pertussis, also known as Whooping Cough with the Tetanus, Diphtheria and Acellular Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine; and effective July 1, 2017, against Neisseria meningitis (meningitis) in the form of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY).

University Immunization Requirements
Unless excused because of religious belief or medical condition a person shall not attend a university until they submit to the university proof of immunity to Tetanus, Diphtheria (Td or Tdap), Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR). If person is less than 23 years of age and enrolled as a freshman, this person shall not attend university until he or she submits to the university proof of immunity against Meningitis. Vaccination with at least one dose of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY) on or after age 16 years will satisfy this requirement.

A flu vaccine is recommended annually for 6 months and older, and 11-12 year olds are also recommended to receive the HPV vaccine.


Where can I go?

Visit your healthcare provider. Make an appointment now and avoid the back to school rush. Check with your health insurance for providers near you. If you do not have insurance, visit VFCnevada.org to find one in your zip code.

Contact your local health department or community health nurse. Local health departments and community health clinics offer immunizations by appointment and/or walk-in hours. They serve uninsured, and accept Medicaid, and some insurance plans. Contact for location specific information:

Washoe County:  (775) 328-2402
Carson City:  (775) 887-2195
Douglas County:  (775) 782-9038
Clark County: (702) 759-0850
Community Health Clinics (Rural Counties): (775) 687-5162
 
Visit your local pharmacy. Vaccine.healthmap.org can help find a location near your zip code. Most pharmacies take insurance and vaccinate school aged children; call first for hours and vaccines available.
 
Visit a community event. Our calendar lists community events with low or no cost vaccines and is updated weekly
 
For more information on where to receive immunizations, visit our “Where To Go” Page.

Are you worried about the cost?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most insurance plans to cover the cost of all recommended vaccines (including seasonal flu) without charging a deductible, copayment or coinsurance. Most are no cost as long as they are administered by an “in-network” provider. Visit NevadaHealthLink.com for health coverage information. 

Children younger than 19 years of age qualify for the Nevada Vaccines for Children (VFC) program if they are Medicaid-eligible, American Indian or Alaska Native or are without health insurance. “Underinsured” children who have health insurance that does not cover vaccination can receive VFC vaccines through Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) or Rural Health Centers.

 


What should I bring?

If you have health insurance (including Nevada Check Up or Medicaid), be sure to bring your insurance card.

For any clinic, bring a copy of your child’s immunization records. A few options for locating records:

  • Bring any existing paper records into a clinic for assistance.
  • Visit https://izrecord.nv.gov to look up records in WebIZ, Nevada’s Immunization Information System.
  • If you moved from another state, you may be able to look records up in their immunization record system. A list can be found here
  • Check with your child’s current or past healthcare provider to see if they have records on file.
