Immunization Requirements/Requisitos de Inmunización
Tuesday, August 28th, 2007
The close of the 80th Legislative Session resulted in the passage of House Bill (HB) 1059, which requires the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to create a list of the required immunizations for school attendance and a list of the recommended vaccinations. The required immunization list, although already in existence as the Minimum Immunization Requirements, has been updated. DSHS follows the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended immunizations, thus this schedule will serve as the department's recommended list of vaccinations.
