Dallas, Texas – Dallas County schools are planning to strictly enforce their immunization policy for the upcoming school year. As reported by The 33 News, students whose immunizations are not up to date will not be allowed to attend class, and the policy has sparked many to make last minute efforts to get their children required back to school shots.
As noted in the report, Saturday’s clinic at the Dallas County Department of Health and Human Services was the last free immunization clinic for the summer provided by Dallas County. More than 150 children were immunized by the end of the clinic Saturday.
Health and Human Services Director Zach Thompson is quoted by The 33 News as stating, “There’s no waivers, no extensions, no excuses. School will start on August 23rd and immunization records must be up to date.”
