It’s not too early to be preparing to go back to school.  Utah State law requires vaccinations for children entering into kindergarten and  seventh grade. If you have a child that will be in one of these grades for the 19-20 school year now is a good time to check and see if they are up to date on their vaccines. Most kindergarteners need 2  immunizations a Dtap/polio booster and MMR/Varicella booster. Seventh graders are required to have a Tdap booster and meningococcal vaccine. The Gardasil or HPV vaccine is recommended but not required. These can easily be done at a well child visit with your Doctor or at TriCounty Health Department.  If for some reason your child is missing any vaccines this is a great time to catch them up.
