The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Immunization Branch would like to announce that proposed revisions to Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §§97.61-97.72 are currently under revision. As a result, the 2016-2017 Texas Minimum State Vaccine Requirements for students in grades K-12 are not yet finalized. New vaccine requirements have not been proposed. However, please note that proposed changes to the meningococcal requirement for students entering grades 7-12 will require students in these grades to show proof of one dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4 or MenACWY) on or after the student’s eleventh birthday. Additionally, the graded implementation of the hepatitis A requirement will extend to grades K-7, as currently prescribed in 25 TAC §97.63. For additional information, please contact the DSHS Immunization Branch at 1-800-252-9152 or click here.
