State law requires that all children attending a Wisconsin school be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, rubella, mumps and varicella.
2016-17 minimum immunization requirements for attendance at Wisconsin public, private,and parochial schools are as follows:
Grades K-12 -- (4) DTP/DTaP/DT, (4) Polio, (2)Measles, (2) Rubella, (2) Mumps, (3) Hepatitis B, (2) Varicella.
Students attending 4K require (4) DTP/DTaP/DT, (3) Polio, (1) Measles, (1) Rubella, (1) Mumps, (3) Hepatitis B and (1) Varicella.
Students in grades 6-12 must also have 1 Tdap vaccine.
All students must have a varicella vaccine (for chicken pox) or have reported having had the disease. This year students entering kindergarten, grades K- 12 must have had two varicella immunizations.
These requirements can be waived only if a properly signed health, religious or personal conviction exemption is filed with the school. If an outbreak of any vaccine-preventable disease occurs, students who are not fully immunized may be excluded from school to prevent spreading of the disease.
