Immunization Requirements

    • The APS Immunizations link is a method of sharing information to parents, students, staff, and communities about immunization requirements for school attendance in accordance with Official Code of Georgia O.C.G.A § 20-2-771. Stay abreast of immunization resources to ensure compliance for attending school and to help APS promote a healthy and safe environment for all APS students. Information is updated and aligned with the current recommendations of the Advisory of Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

      Certificates of Immunization are required by Georgia Law 20-2-771. All kindergarten, sixth and seventh grade students, all students new to Georgia and students coming from any private school must have the Georgia Certificate of Immunization 3231 form signed by a licensed health-care provider or the county health department. Click here for FULTON COUNTY HEALTH CENTERS  or DEKALB COUNTY HEALTH CENTERS.

      For students entering from out-of-state schools, please contact your local Health Department or a Georgia licensed physician to have immunizations transferred to the Georgia Immunization Certificate (Form 3231). You will need to have your immunization record from your state in order to transfer immunizations to Form 3231. All requirements apply to students transferring from out-of-state schools to Georgia schools.

      *New entrants include anyone that is entering Georgia schools for the first time or is returning to a Georgia school after being gone for more than 12 months or one school year.

      To be enrolled in APS, ALL certificates of immunization must be marked “Complete for Attendance” OR have a future expiration date. Expired certificates will not be accepted for enrollment.
