Child’s Proof of Immunization
All Utah Connections Academy students must provide evidence of their immunizations. A student who, at the time of school enrollment, has not been completely immunized against each specified disease may attend school under a conditional enrollment if the student has received one dose of each specified vaccine prior to enrollment and is completing the required immunizations as allowed by the medically required time periods between doses. Therefore, a student who enrolls under a conditional enrollment must complete all required immunizations within the designated period or be excluded from school.
Students who transfer from another state or from one Utah school to another must provide appropriate immunization documentation that satisfies Utah’s requirements.
The Utah School Immunization Record (USIR) is the official certificate of immunization for students in any Utah public, private, charter or parochial school. The USIR is commonly referred to as the "Pink Card" and is part of the student’s permanent school record.
Please submit one of the following:
Not Sure What Immunizations Are Required?
To enroll in kindergarten, a student must have written proof of receiving immunizations listed on the "Immunization Requirements for Kindergarten Entry 2018–19" webpage.
To enroll in the seventh (7th) grade, a student must have written proof of receiving immunizations listed on the "Immunization Requirements for 7th Grade Entry 2018–19" webpage.
Where Can I Get Immunizations for My Student?
Immunizations can be obtained from doctor’s offices, clinics, or hospitals. Pediatricians and family doctors or their nurses or medical assistants can give your student the shots he or she needs to meet the requirements for school enrollment. In addition, some large chain pharmacies offer immunizations for older children and adults.
To locate a specific vaccination clinic in Utah, please use the "Vaccination Locator" webpage developed by the Utah Department of Health.
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 the following program:
A student may be exempt from immunizations for medical, religious, or personal belief reasons. To receive a vaccination exemption form, the legally responsible individual of a student must complete an online education module (free of charge), print the vaccine exemption form, and present the form to the school.
If the legally responsible individual declines to complete the online education module, he/she must receive an in-person consultation at the local health department ($25.00 fee may apply), sign the exemption form at the local health department, and provide a copy of the completed school immunization exemption form to the school official.
For a medical exemption from vaccination, the legally responsible individual of the student must present to the school a completed vaccination exemption form and a written notice signed by a licensed healthcare provider stating that due to the physical condition of the student, administration of the vaccine would endanger the student’s life or health.
