Child’s Proof of Immunization
All students enrolling in Nevada Connections Academy students must provide evidence of their immunizations, as required by the State of Nevada, to be eligible for enrollment. Please submit the dates of the student's immunizations on either a State of Nevada official Immunization Form (please see the Immunize Nevada webpage titled "Where to Get Immunizations" for more information), a current immunization booklet, official school record, or the Connections Academy Immunization form, which can be found in your enrollment documents on Connexus.
These forms must be stamped or signed by a health care provider.
Nevada WebIZ is a confidential, online computer system used in the State of Nevada to keep track of immunizations. If you need to know which immunizations you or someone in your family needs, this information is available on the Nevada WebIZ website.
Parents and legal guardians can also print official immunization records for their child(ren) (ages 0 through 17- years-old) and adults (ages 18 years and over) can print official immunization records for themselves. This is an official record and can be used as proof of immunization for school.

Where Can I Get Immunizations for My Student?
Immunizations can be obtained from doctor’s offices, clinics (including Community Health Centers and Nevada Health Centers), or hospitals. Pediatricians and family doctors or their nurses or medical assistants can give your student the shots they need to meet the requirements for school enrollment. In addition, some large chain pharmacies offer immunizations for older children and adults.
What if I Need Assistance Paying for Vaccines?
If you need assistance paying for shots/vaccinations, you may be able to get free or reduced immunizations through this program:
A student may be exempt from immunizations for the following reasons: medical exemption or religious exemption. Please use the Connections Academy Immunization/Exemption form if requesting an exemption (which can be found in your enrollment documents in Connexus).
- Medical Exemption: If the medical condition of a child will not permit the child to be immunized, a written statement of this fact must be provided and signed by both a licensed physician and by the parents or guardian of the child. A Connections Academy Immunization/Exemption form (which can be found in your enrollment documents in Connexus) must be completed and signed by the child’s physician.
- Religious Beliefs: If the parents or guardians hold religious beliefs which preclude receipt of a vaccination(s), a Connections Academy Immunization/Exemption form (which can be found in your enrollment documents in Connexus) must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian with all information completely supplied, including the vaccines being waived. An updated waiver must be presented each year the child’s immunization status is reported.
