Student Immunization Policy

The Broken Bow Board of Education shall provide an environment for students to study, interact, and learn.  Such an environment shall be reasonably free of known hazards which may threaten or endanger the health of our children or educators.

The board of education shall require that no child be admitted to this school unless and until certification from a licensed physician or authorized representative of the State Department of Health is presented to the school administrators that such child has received or is in the process of receiving the immunization required by the State Department of Public Health unless an exemption has been granted from the immunizations on medical, religious, or personal grounds.

If a parent or guardian is unable to pay for the required immunizations, the school will refer the student to the State Department of Public Health for assistance.

The following immunizations are required by the State Department of Public Health prior to the enrollment of a child in public school:

  • 5 DPT (Diphtheria - Pertussis - Tetanus) (unless the fourth dose was received after the fourth birthday)

  • 4 Polio (unless the third dose was received after the fourth birthday)

  • 2 Measles (Rubeola)

  • 1 Rubella

  • 1 Mumps


All students entering kindergarten and first grade must provide documentation of having received three doses of hepatitis B vaccine.  All students entering the seventh and eighth grades must provide documentation of having received three doses of hepatitis B vaccine.  Every subsequent year, the hepatitis B requirements will be extended by one additional grade level.


All students entering the seventh grade must provide documentation of having received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine.  All students entering kindergarten must provide documentation of having received two doses of the hepatitis A vaccine and chicken pox (varicella) vaccine.  Every subsequent year, these requirements will be extended by one additional grade level.  All students entering kindergarten, first grade, seventh grade, and eighth grade in the fall 1999 semester are required to provide documentation of vaccination for hepatitis A.
