With the start of school on Thursday, Aug. 12, Fresno Unified wants to remind families of the importance of being up to date on regular school immunizations. All students entering school must meet state immunization requirements. Students entering kindergarten and seventh grade must provide proof of updated immunizations. The district’s Health Services Department will host the free clinic at Tioga on several dates in August for those on Medi-Cal or who do not have insurance. Students with insurance should see their medical provider to obtain immunizations.

For kindergarten entry, all students are required to be up to date on vaccines against polio, diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus (Dtap), mumps, measles and rubella (MMR), hepatitis B, and varicella. All students entering seventh grade must show proof of current vaccination against pertussis (whooping cough) and have a second varicella immunization.

Guidelines for the Tioga clinic:

  • Only one parent/legal guardiancan accompany student
  • Parent/legal guardian and student will need to wear a mask
  • Student mustbring current immunization record
  • Student mustbring current Medi-Cal card if they have Medi-Cal insurance
  • A student or accompanying adult should not attend if they feel sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms (cough, chills, fever, muscle and body aches, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, headache, repeated shaking/tremors, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or running nose, vomiting, nausea, or diarrhea)
  • A student or accompanying adult should not attend if anyone in their household has been confirmed or suspected of COVID-19 in the last 14 days or has been notified they are a close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days

“We invite parents to take advantage of the free immunization clinics at Tioga Middle School for a healthy start to this new school year,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
