Immunization InformationMinnesota School Immunization Law (State Statutes #123.70) states that your child must complete immunization requirements before starting school. Students transferring to ISD 622 must provide immunization information when registering. Immunizations must be up-to-date prior to starting school or the child will not be allowed to enter school until immunizations are complete. Exemptions to immunization requirements are medical status or conscientious objectors. A waiver form must be signed and notarized for those students requesting exemption status.
A copy of your child's current immunization record must be on file at his/her school.

Back-to-School Immunization Clinics planned for students
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 Pupil Immunization Record Form is available here or from the health office at each school. Immunizations will not be given without this form.
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. To make it easier for staff to give the vaccinations it is suggested that students wear short sleeves.
The immunization clinics will be held at the Well@Work Clinic at the District Education Center, 2520 12th Avenue East, North St. Paul on the following dates and times:
- Wednesday, Sept. 6 – 8 am to 12 noon
- Thursday, Sept. 7 – 2 pm to 6 pm
More information is posted above. Clinics will also be offered during the back-to-school open houses at John Glenn and Maplewood Middle Schools as well as Skyview Elementary School.Public Health Clinics offering immunizations:

No shots, no school for District 622 students
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 the exemption portion of the immunization 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/index.html.
