Tennessee Department of Health

Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – Summer break is almost over for many students in Tennessee, and as plans are being made for another school year, the Tennessee Department of Health says it’s important to make sure students receive their required immunizations before going back to the classroom.

“We want Tennessee children to be in school, learning in a safe and healthy environment, so it’s extremely important students are vaccinated against diseases that can spread easily in the classroom or elsewhere,” said TDH Chief Medical Officer David Reagan. “I encourage parents and caregivers to protect their students, their families and those around them by getting the vaccines they need to stay healthy.”

Kindergarteners and other children enrolling in a Tennessee school for the first time must provide schools with a complete Official Tennessee Immunization Certificate before classes begin.
