Make sure your children are up-to-date on vaccines before sending them to school.
 

School-age children - from preschoolers to college students - need vaccines.

The Williamson County Health Department encourages parents to have their school-age children immunized now to avoid long lines and extended wait times that may occur closer to the start of the 2016-2017 school year.   

Requirements for school vaccinations in Tennessee: 

• Children entering kindergarten or enrolling in a Tennessee school for the first time must provide schools with an Official Tennessee Immunization Certificate before classes begin.  The certificate must be signed by a healthcare provider or verified by the state’s immunization information system.  

• All students entering 7th grade must provide schools with a limited Official Tennessee Immunization Certificate showing they have had a second dose of chickenpox vaccine (or a history of the illness) and a booster shot for tetanus, diphtheria. 

Please print and complete the Patient Demographic form and bring your child’s immunization records to the health department.   Our hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  If you have questions, please call 615.794.1542 (Franklin) or 615.799.2389 (Fairview).
