Broken Arrow Public Schools would like to remind parents/legal guardians that the State of Oklahoma requires all students entering into Pre-K to have the following immunizations:

• 4 – DTP/DTaP
• 3 – Polio
• 1 – MMR
• 2 - Hepatitis A
• 3 – Hepatitis B
• 1 – Varicella (Chicken Pox)

Students entering into kindergarten must have the following:

• 5 – DTP/DTaP
• 4 – Polio
• 2 – MMR
• 2 - Hepatitis A
• 3 – Hepatitis B
• 1 – Varicella (Chicken Pox)

Students entering seventh grade are required to receive one Tdap booster for immunizations against tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis. This is a booster to the DTP students received before kindergarten. Students will not be allowed to pick up their schedules without this immunization.

The Guide to Immunization Requirements in Oklahoma contains essential immunizations information for the state of Oklahoma.

You are encouraged to contact your child’s healthcare provider as soon as possible to arrange for these immunizations.

To assist in obtaining these immunizations to eligible students, Broken Arrow Public Schools is once again teaming up with the Caring Van program in August. A registered nurse will be available during the dates and times listed below to administer free immunizations to students who:

* Are eligible for SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid)

* Are Native American

* Are Uninsured

Please note that if the student does not meet at least ONE of the above criteria, he or she will be referred to a private physician for required immunizations.

A parent/legal guardian must accompany the student. A current copy of your student’s immunization record and the immunization consent form (Spanish version of the consent form) is also required. After receiving the immunizations, a copy of the updated records should be brought to your student’s school site.

The following are the dates, times and locations for when the Oklahoma Caring Van will be available within the district.
