IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS AND RECORDS
Requirements are listed on the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s website.
Contact your regular doctor or the OK State Department of Health for locations to obtain immunizations your child may still need.
Oklahoma law allows exemptions for medical, religious or personal reasons. Students may have an exemption to one or more vaccines and receive the other vaccinations. In this case a student may have an immunization record and an exemption certificate on file with the school. To apply for an exemption, please fill out the exemption certificate and bring it to your school. For more information regarding immunizations and exemptions, please visit the OK State Department of Health's website.
The Oklahoma Caring Van Program
The Oklahoma Caring Van Program delivers immunizations to protect children and adolescents from dangerous illnesses at no cost to their families. The Oklahoma Caring Van Program is uniquely designed to eliminate barriers that commonly prevent children from receiving on-time, age-appropriate immunizations in traditional health care settings.
Since the program began in October 1999, thousands of children have received immunizations from registered immunization nurses aboard the Caring Vans. Immunization information is entered in the Oklahoma State Immunization Information System (OSIIS) so children's vaccine history is readily available.
The Caring Vans travel to licensed child care centers, schools and community locations statewide.
