Immunization and Health Questions

Immunization and Health Questions

Why is there so much fuss about immunizations?

State law prohibits a school district from enrolling a student who has incomplete immunization information, unless a waiver is signed. (Read more about obtaining a Nonmedical Waiver.) To ensure compliance, state funding may be partially withheld if new students do not have current/complete immunization records on file with the school.

May I fax my child's immunization record?

Yes. Please include the name of the school your child attends and their birth date. The FAX number is 734-595-2100.

Does the county forward immunization records to the school?

No. It is the responsibility of the parent/student to provide immunization documentation.

Can I get my child immunized through the county?

Yes. For more information please visit Wayne County's Website or refer to the Health Center Information for additional options.
