A healthy school setting gives all students the best chance to learn and grow. Vaccines are very important to this effort. They protect children from getting and spreading diseases that can make them very sick. For this reason, we require children aged 3 years and up- who are attending SJWCA be vaccinated against certain diseases.
The number of vaccine doses your child needs may vary. It depends on:
- medical history, and
- if they have gotten vaccine doses before.
