Immunization Requirements

Is your child current on Immunizations? 

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 3231 form signed by a licensed health-care provider or the county health department. 

For students entering from out-of-state schools, please contact the Georgia Health Department or a Georgia licensed physician to have immunizations transferred to the Georgia Certificate (Form 3231). You 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 WCS, ALL certificates of immunization must be marked "Complete for Attendance" OR have a future expiration date. Expired certificates will not be accepted for enrollment.
