West Nile Virus
Senate Bill 31, passed by the Texas Legislature in the Fall of 2001, requires that school districts provide the following information to all parents in the district. Meningitis is most commonly spread in the college dormitories, due to close living arrangements, but the legislature felt it was important for all parents to be made aware of the disease. Colleges now require students to provide proof of having had the Meningitis vaccine within the last 5 years. Please click on the link for more informtion.
****2013-2014 Texas Immunization Requirements****
PLEASE note that starting the 2009-2010 school year the State Of Texas has a "phase-in" schedule that is requiring Hepatitis A, MMR, Varicella, Tdap, and Meningococcal vaccinations for students, starting with Kindergarten and 7th grade, depending on the immunization. EACH year a grade level will be added. Please follow the link below for the schedule concerning these vaccinations.
Exemptions to Immunization Requirements
Chapter §97.62 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) describes the conditions under which individuals can seek exemptions from Texas immunization requirements. Exclusions from compliance are allowable on an individual basis for medical contraindications, reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, and active duty with the armed forces of the United States.
Information on obtaining an exemption for immunizations is available at the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Dial 2-1-1 for Flu Advice
You can now dial 2-1-1 to receive over-the-phone medical guidance about what you should do if you or a family member have flu symptoms.
The state’s 2-1-1 health information helpline is now staffed with medical professionals who can provide information about managing flu symptoms and advice on when to seek medical care from a physician or emergency room.
This will help you make informed decisions about how to care for yourself and your family. The guidance is not intended to replace specific instructions people receive from their physicians.
The 2-1-1 staff also can provide general flu information and vaccine availability information for individuals and health care providers. Calls are answered round-the-clock. Callers are instructed to choose a language and then press “6” for flu information and guidance.
Basic flu symptoms include fever, cough and sore throat that usually come on suddenly. Most cases are relatively mild to moderate and do not need emergency treatment. Most people who have H1N1 flu or seasonal flu just need appropriate fluid intake, fever-reducing medication, rest and careful monitoring.
People with underlying health conditions who think they have the flu should contact their health care provider.
