Required School Immunizations

New kindergartners are required to have be up-to-date on vaccinations for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP, DTAaP, or Tdap vaccine), polio, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), hepatitis A and B, and varicella (chicken pox).

Seventh graders are required to have a Tdap booster, and it is highly recommended they also receive a booster for varicella, meningitis, and HPV. Health professionals also encourage these same boosters for college students if they haven't had them. School immunization rules will be updated in 2015, so check back for updates.

You can find the complete schedule of immunizations at www.utahcountyonline.org/Dept2/Health/Nursing/school_immun.asp.

Adult Immunizations

  • Tdap
    • Pertussis, more commonly known as whooping cough, is making a comeback. In 2014, 414 cases of pertussis were reported in Utah County. In 2013, there were 253 reported cases of pertussis in Utah County. These number could have been significantly higher because of the number of cases that go unreported.
    • In response to the pertussis resurgence, Utah County Health Department is able to offer Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine for $16.00 to individuals who are 19 years of age or older that are uninsured or underinsured.
    • Anyone having contact with young children, including parents, grandparents, caregivers, nursing students, and child care workers should be immunized with Tdap.
