Booker T. Washington High School Nurse's Corner
Welcome to BTWHSPVA Nurse's Corner. Here are some helpful tips to make the enrollment process a little bit easier and successful.
First, having current immunization information at the time of enrollment is important. It is the Texas State Law that all students are current and must follow the Texas State Immunization Requirements in order to be in school. Here is the website where you may find the most updated immunization schedule: http://www.immunizetexas.org/.
Second, try to compile all shot information into one clear and understandable record and make sure all dates have a signature and/or stamp from the doctor, nurse or health facility where the shots were given.
Third, have all shot information with you at time of enrollment if you are transferring from another school out of district, out of town, or out of state.
Also, All medication require a physicians order. Please see page 48 of the student handbook for more information. Report to the clinic for the proper district form for medication administration. More information may be found:
