Time to Immunize!


Each May, the Austin Independent School District sends letters to the parents of students who, according to school records, need immunizations before the next school year begins.

If you receive a letter and your child has already had the shot, please take the shot record to the school nurse. If your child has not yet received the shot, please visit your child's physician or clinic. You can also contact one of the community resources attached with the letter or listed on AISD's website. The website also offers a complete listing of immunization requirements including a quick reference guide of the vaccines required for different age groups.

If you have questions about your child's immunizations or community resources, or if you require other information, please contact your school nurse or Children's/AISD Student Health Services Administrative Office at (512) 324-0195.

For more information about AISD's vaccination program, call the "2-1-1" referral line. This toll-free number provides a list of the health and social services for your area.

Don't wait until the last minute – immunize your kids now to ensure they're in their seats when the first bell rings Aug. 22, 2011.
