Bulloch Schools: Take time this summer to update your child’s shots

Summer is a great time for you to check with your child’s doctor or the Bulloch County Health Department to make sure your child is up to date on all of the required vaccines they need for school and childcare.

If your child is due for any state-required immunizations, please plan to have your child receive them before the new school year begins on August 1. The attached guide from the Georgia Department of Public Health will help you know more about Georgia’s required immunizations.

Georgia law requires that all children who attend childcare and enter school be protected against the following diseases: diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenza Type b (Hib), measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, tetanus, varicella (chickenpox), polio, pneumococcal, and meningococcal disease.

After your child receives any new shots, be sure to ask for an updated Georgia Certificate of Immunization (form 3231) from your doctor or Health Department. You can then either provide a copy of this form to your school’s registrar or update your child’s records online using your Campus Parent account.

If your child does not have health insurance or your health plan will not cover vaccines, call or visit the Bulloch County Health Department and ask about their no-cost or low-cost vaccines or call the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Vaccines for Children Program at (800) 848-3868.

Important Reminder for Children Age 16 & Older
Children who are 16 years of age and older who will be in 11th or 12th grade must show proof that they have received a booster dose of the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV4), unless they received their first initial dose of MCV4 on or after they turned 16.
