Texas school and child-care facility immunization requirements are determined by the state legislature and set by the Texas Department of State Health Services, in conjunction with the Texas Education Agency.
Maintaining adequate immunization rates in schools is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of Texas children.
The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is granted authority, by Texas Administrative Code, Title 25, to set immunization requirements by Texas Education Code, Chapter 38.
