Immunization Information

In Oklahoma, vaccinations are required before children are enrolled at school. Proof of immunization

must be presented at the time of enrollment. Students will be allowed to attend school if they have

received the first dose in the series of a multi-dose vaccine, but they must complete the series on

schedule.

This is the fourth year for the new requirement for students entering 7th grade. They must have a

Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis Booster.

For more information on immunization requirements, please contact your health care provider or the

Kay County Health Department at 580-762-1641. You can also find more detailed information on our

website at: www.pcps.us.

IMPORTANT CHANGE

Children whose health insurance covers the cost of vaccinations are no longer eligible for VFC

(vaccines for children) vaccines through the County Health Department clinic sites.

Parents are encouraged to seek vaccinations through their primary care providers. If your provider

does not administer vaccines, area pharmacies offer vaccines to insured children.

Vaccines are also administered by area physicians, urgent care clinics, health centers, and tribal

clinics.
