Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 5. Department of Health
Chapter 110. Regulations for the Immunization of School Children

12VAC5-110-100. Responsibilities of physicians and local health departments.

A. Documentary proof for students immunized in Virginia. Every physician, registered nurse, and local health department providing immunizations to a child shall provide documentary proof, as defined in 12VAC5-110-10, to the child or his parent or guardian of all immunizations administered.

B. Documentary proof for out-of-state students. For a student transferring from an out-of-state school to a Virginia school, the admitting official may accept as documentary proof any immunization record for that student that is signed by a physician or registered nurse and that contains the exact date (month/day/year) of administration of each of the required doses of vaccines when indicated and that complies fully with the requirements prescribed under 12VAC5-110-70. Any immunization record that does not contain the signature of a physician or a nurse and does not contain the month/day/year of administration of each of the required vaccine doses shall not be accepted by the admitting official as documentary proof of adequate immunization. Such a student's record shall be evaluated by an official of the local health department who shall determine if that student is adequately immunized in accordance with the provisions of 12VAC5-110-70. Should the local health department determine that such a student is not adequately immunized, that student shall be referred to his private physician or local health department for any required immunizations.
