Changes in School Immunization Requirements (Effective October 1, 2015)

The 2015 Montana Legislature revised school immunization requirements for school attendance through the passage of House Bill (HB) 158. The law, signed by the Governor and effective October 1, 2015, requires students attending school to be vaccinated against varicella disease (chickenpox) and receive a booster of pertussis vaccine in 7th grade.

Visit the Immunization Action Coalition website to read about historic dates and events related to vaccines and immunization.

Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade will need to have two doses of varicella vaccine. If your child has had the chickenpox virus you may submit documentation by having your medical provider complete the approved History of Varicella Form (PDF).

Immunization Clinic

The City-County Health Department (CCHD) Immunization Clinic provides vaccinations for children and adults of all ages on a walk-in basis and by appointment for travel immunizations. The Prevention Services division also provides limited clinical and laboratory services such as:

  • Cholesterol screenings
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Tuberculosis (TB) testing
  • Other blood titer work

Second only to safe drinking water in preventing illness and death, immunizations save approximately three million lives a year or nearly 10,000 per day world-wide.
