Dixon Unified resumes classes today and several other Vacaville-area public school districts will do so next week.
But, for most incoming kindergarten and seventh-grade students, it means immunization and vaccine records must be up-to-date before they walk onto their respective campuses. According to officials with Solano County Public Health, the following shots are required for those affected students, unless they have a medical exemption on file:
Kindergartners need Dtap (diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis, aka whooping cough), polio, hepatitis B, MMR (mumps, measles, rubella), and varicella, or chicken pox, vaccines.
To enter seventh grade, students need a booster Tdap shot.
