UPDATE: The law has changed and Vian Schools cannot allow students to start school without an updated shot record or a completed, state-approved exemption form on file. If your 7th grade student has not had their TDaP booster, please contact your child's physician, local clinic, or health department immediately to set up an appointment so that your child is up-to-date on immunizations and ready to start school on August 17th.
For 7th grade students, parents will need to provide updated shot records or completed exemption forms to the middle school office before the first day of school. You may email forms to Mrs. RayAnn Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org or FAX them to 918-773-6239 or drop them by the office next week during business hours.
All incoming 7th Graders are required to have a TDaP booster shot or provide a completed and signed Certificate of Exemption from the Oklahoma State Department of Health before being admitted to school.
Oklahoma law and Vian school policy states that "For school enrollment, a parent or guardian shall provide one of the following: 1. Current, up-to-date immunization records; or 2. A completed and signed exemption form." Such evidence is required before the child is allowed to enter or attend Vian Public School.
Children with specific medical contraindications to any or all immunizations or whose parents have objections to immunizations based on religious teachings or personal beliefs can also apply for an exemption. Lost immunization records are not grounds for an exemption to the Oklahoma Law. For questions regarding exemptions, call the Oklahoma State Department of Health at (405) 426-8580.
