Legal guardians must update their child’s immunizations. When enrolling your child in school, be sure to bring a signed record of your child’s current immunizations, signed to enroll provisionally if the required immunization process has begun. Your child can remain in school after 30 days in they have provided YES Prep with a record indicating you are:  

1) in the process of receiving immunizations OR  

2) bringing an affidavit indicating your child cannot receive vaccines or is choosing not to receive the recommended vaccines.  

If you cannot provide YES Prep with the immunization records or one of the two above documents. YES Prep may require the student to stay home until the immunizations are complete. 

Some organizations offer free immunizations to eligible children through their regular healthcare providers such as Texas Vaccinations for Children. Others, like a few branches of the Houston Public Library, offer free immunizations during specific hours on certain days of the month. For more information about required immunizations see the Immunization Fact Sheet or call Health Services at (713) 349-7423.
