Additional Immunization Requirements

Additional immunization requirement goes into effect for 12th graders this year.

On December 10, 2020, and January 5, 2021, the State Board of Health and the Legislative Commission, respectively, adopted amendments to Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 392.105 and 394.250. These changes implement a vaccination requirement that becomes effective after June 30, 2022. As of the 2022–2023 school year, a student enrolling in 12th grade in a Nevada public, private, or charter school must:

  • Receive an immunization against Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis) in the form of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY).
  • Receive at least one dose of MenACWY on or after 16 years of age.
  • Note that this new requirement does not apply to students enrolled in a Nevada public, private, or charter school before July 1, 2009.

Vaccines are available through primary care providers, pharmacies, health districts, and Federally Qualified Health Centers throughout Nevada.

Nevada Health Centers holds walk-in Wednesdays from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m. each Wednesday for childhood immunizations at the Elko Family Medical Center. They will also be extending their walk-ins August 24 and 31 until 7:00 p.m.
