Immunization Requirements for Students Displaced by Hurricane Harvey

The current immunization requirements give homeless or transferring students within Texas school districts a 30-day provisional enrollment period during which immunization records must be provided to their school. Under the authority of the Governor’s extension of the Hurricane Harvey disaster declaration, the DSHS has elected to suspend the 30-day requirement for displaced students having trouble producing immunization records to their school. This suspension will expire on November 1, 2017, unless extended by the Office of the Governor.
