A child entering a Michigan school for the first time must submit an immunization record on the day of registration.  Michigan laws also require the immunization record showing the month, day, and year of all shots against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, rubella (German measles), mumps, and poliomyelitis.  At least four doses of DPT and three doses of polio vaccine are required; and, if a dose was not received on or after the fourth birthday, a booster dose at school entry is necessary.  Two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) received after the first birthday are necessary, with one of the doses at or after fifteen months of age.  If the child has not been immunized because of religious convictions or other objections to immunization, a statement to that effect, signed by a parent or guardian, must be presented at the time of registration.  A parent or guardian may request that the local health department give the required protective injections and diagnostic tests.

 


A physical examination is strongly recommended, BUT IS NOT REQUIRED, for each student entering the school district for the first time.
