Provisional Enrollment

All immunizations should be completed by the first date of attendance. The law requires that students be fully vaccinated against the specified diseases. A student may be enrolled provisionally if the student has an immunization record that indicates the student has received at least one dose of each specified age- appropriate vaccine required by this rule. To remain enrolled, the student must complete the required subsequent doses in each vaccine series on schedule
and as rapidly as is medically feasible and provide acceptable evidence of vaccination to the school. A school nurse or school administrator shall review the immunization status of a provisionally enrolled student every 30 days to ensure continued compliance in completing the required doses of vaccination.  If, at the end of the 30-day period, a student has not received a subsequent dose of vaccine, the student is not in compliance and the school shall exclude the student from school attendance until the required dose is administered.

Additional guidelines for provisional enrollment of students transferring from one Texas public or private school to another, students who are dependents of active duty military, students in foster care, and students who are homeless can be found in the TAC, Title 25 Health Services, Sections 97.66 and 97.69.

Documentation

Since many types of personal immunization records are in use, any document will be acceptable provided a physician or public health personnel has validated
it. The month, day, and year that the vaccination was received must be recorded on all school immunization records created or updated after September 1, 1991.

Inscripción provisional

Todas las inmunizaciones deben haberse completado antes de la primera fecha de asistencia. La ley exige que los estudiantes estén completamente vacunados contra las enfermedades específicas. Un estudiante puede inscribirse de manera provisional si cuenta con un registro de inmunización que indique que el estudiante ha recibido al menos una dosis de cada vacuna específica apropiada para su edad que esta regla exige. Para seguir inscrito, el estudiante debe completar las dosis posteriores requeridas de cada serie de vacunas conforme al calendario y tan rápidamente como sea médicamente posible, y proporcionar a la escuela un comprobante aceptable de que ha sido vacunado. Un enfermero escolar o un administrador escolar revisará el estado de inmunización de los estudiantes inscritos de manera provisional cada 30 días para garantizar el cumplimiento ininterrumpido de la aplicación de las dosis de vacunas requeridas. Si, al final del periodo de 30 días, un estudiante no ha recibido una dosis posterior de la vacuna, el estudiante no está cumpliendo y la escuela excluirá al estudiante para que no asista a la escuela hasta que se administre la dosis requerida.

Las pautas adicionales para la inscripción provisional de estudiantes transferidos de una escuela pública o privada de Texas a otra, de estudiantes que dependen de militares en servicio activo, de estudiantes que viven en hogar de acogida y de estudiantes en situación de sin techo, se encuentran en el TAC, título 25, Servicios de salud, secciones 97.66 y 97.69.

Documentación

Dado que se usan muchos tipos de registros de inmunización personales, cualquier documento es aceptable si un médico o el personal de salud pública lo ha validado. Debe registrarse el mes, día y año en que se recibió la vacuna en todos los registros de inmunización escolares creados o actualizados después del 1 de septiembre de 1991.

Without the proper documentation of required vaccinations or a valid medical or conscientious exemption, students will not be allowed to attend school.
