Each child enrolled at New Generation Child Care Center must meet applicable immunization requirements specified by the Texas Department of Health. This applies to children in early care from birth through school age. The documentation must be validated by a physician or other health care professional and include:
- A signature or rubber stamp
- Child’s first and last name
- Child’s birth date
- The vaccine type and number of doses
- The month, day, and year the child received each vaccination
This documentation may be the original record or a photocopy.
Any exemptions from the immunization requirements must meet criteria specified by the Texas Department of Health. For more information, check out www.dshs.texas.gov/immunize/.
For children enrolled in public school, an immunization record does not have to be on file at New Generation Child Care Center. However, parents must provide the child’s school information in the enrollment package.
