Who calls the shots?
BacktoSchool-Immunization Your kids have little bodies and great big feelings. And we know shots are not fun for them (or you). But, making sure your kids’ immunizations are up-to-date is critical to keeping them healthy. In fact, incidences of serious conditions, such as whooping cough, are actually on the rise because immunizations are down.

The State of Minnesota requires that parents supply schools with documentation showing that their children have been immunized. Minnesota Statutes, Section 121A.15, and Rules, Chapter 6404: Immunization, requires all students enrolling in an elementary or secondary school to show evidence of immunization or properly documented exemption. Types of exemptions include conscientious objections or medical exemption. (Source: Minnesota Department of Health, Section 121A.15, Chapter 6404)
