DTP/DTaP/Td (5 Doses)  Diphtheira, tetanus & pertussis/tetanus diphtheria vaccine.  A 5th dose of DTP/DTaP is not required if 4th dose is administered on or after the 4th birthday.

Td/Tdap (1 Dose)  An adolescent Td (tetanus diphtheria) booster is required for all 7th grade students who have not received a booster shot during the previous 5 years.  Students 8th-12 grades are required to have the age-appropriate series completed plus one additional Td booster.

Polio (4 Doses)  The final dose must be given on or after the 4th birthday even if this means a 5th dose.  If IPV or OPV only were used, 3 doses is considered a complete series if the 3rd dose is given on or after the 4th birthday.  A combination OPV/IPV requires 4 doses for a complete series.

Hepatitis B (3 Doses)  Series of three vaccinations given over a 6 month period of time.
