School District 622, in partnership with Homeland Health, will hold two immunization clinics for enrolled District 622 students only who have not received their required shots prior to starting school.
Students must bring their Student Immunization Form to the clinic, which specifies the immunizations he or she needs prior to starting school. The Form is available from the health office at each school. Immunizations will not be given without this form. Please wear short sleeves.
A $14 administrative fee is requested per vaccination, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay. Families with insurance should bring their insurance card with them.The immunization clinics will be held at the District Education Center, 2520 12th Avenue East, North St. Paul on the following dates and times:
Clinics will also be offered during the back-to-school open houses at John Glenn, Maplewood and Skyview Middle Schools.
As parents and students gear up for the start of the new school year, remember to make sure that students are up-to-date on all of their required shots.
The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District has a “No Shots, No School” policy, which means that all students must have the proper immunizations, be a conscientious objector, or have a medical exemption BEFORE starting school.
Minnesota law and School Board policy requires written proof of scheduled shots for students in grades K-12. If a child has a medical reason, or if his/her parents are conscientiously opposed to any or all of the scheduled shots, a legal exemption is available. To file an exemption, you must complete a form, which is provided by the school district. The form is also available on the Minnesota Department of Health’s Web site at http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/idepc/immunize/pupilimzrec.pdf.
