  3. HPV—For Students in 7th-12th the HPV vaccination is strongly recommended for the prevention of cancer.
  4. Polio* - Four doses of Polio vaccine given at appropriate intervals.  Three doses sufficient if last dose given on/after 4th birthday following CDC’s catch-up schedule.
  5. MMR* - Two doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) at appropriate intervals.  Minimum age for 1st dose 12 months.
  6. Hepatitis B – Completion of three doses of Hepatitis B for all students.  The two dose series is acceptable for grades 6 – 12.  Two-dose Adult Recombivax HB is valid if administered at ages 11-15 years if 2nd dose received no sooner than 16 weeks after 1st dose.

  8. Meningococcal Men. (ACWY)—1 dose required at age 11-12 for 7th grade entry; booster does recommended at age 16-18.

   It is a violation of the Compulsory School Attendance Law for a student to enroll who is not appropriately immunized, unless a valid exemption is in place or the student is experiencing homelessness. The law does not grant immunization exemptions for philosophical or personal reasons. 

   An original immunization record must be presented for recording by the school upon the student’s enrollment. A certificate of a duly licensed physician stating that the physical condition of the child is such that immunization would seriously endanger the life or health of the child; or Affidavits or written affirmation from an officer of a recognized religious denomination that such child’s parents or guardians are bona fide members of a denomination whose religious teaching requires reliance upon prayer or spiritual means alone for healing; Affidavits or written affirmation from parent or legal guardian that religious beliefs, held either individually or jointly with others, do not permit the administration of vaccine or other immunizing agent.

Parent/guardian must file the completed form with the Department of Health and then is responsible to submit the “approved” form from the Department of Health to the school.  The school nurse will file medical/religious exemptions in the student’s cumulative folder after approval. Both medical and religious exemptions do not exceed the school year for which they are submitted and approved; they must be renewed annually. Current immunization information is available at New Mexico Department Of Health
