North Dakota School Immunization Requirements

One of the most important ways to ensure children are healthy and able to attend school is by maintaining high immunization rates against vaccine-preventable diseases. North Dakota Century Code 23-07-17 mandates that all kindergarten through 12th-grade students meet a minimum number of required immunizations before school entrance or have a documented exemption. With the return of once-eliminated diseases like polio and measles in the United States and across the world, the importance of vaccines and maintaining immunization rates has become more critical. Having vaccine-preventable diseases circulating within a school would lead to large numbers of school absences and negatively affect the health of our students. Immunization rates must reach 95% to keep diseases from spreading if introduced into a school. Once rates fall below the 95% threshold, schools become vulnerable to outbreaks of diseases.
