Immunization Requirements and Information

  • State law (MS 121A.15) requires that each student in a Minnesota school be protected from childhood diseases by receiving immunizations. Parents/guardians may obtain a legal exemption for medical reasons or conscientious beliefs. All students new to the Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) must bring their immunization record or exemption record to school.

     Make sure your child's immunizations are up to date:  Minnesota Deparment of Health (MDH) Are Your Kids Ready? (click on "who needs vaccines, when" to view document)
