There is a new 11th-grade immunization requirement! As students prepare to come back to school on Aug. 5, 2021, here’s a reminder that Georgia state law requires all of our students to have a valid Certificate of Immunization on file with the district. In addition, Georgia's immunization requirements for students entering or transferring into the eleventh grade have been revised to align with the current recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
Effective July 1, 2021, all students who are new entrants or transfers into a Georgia school in the eleventh grade, will require proof of a booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine, unless their first dose was received on or after their sixteenth birthday.
Be sure you’re prepared! Get the full details on our APS Immunizations Requirements site.
