Verification of Varicella (Chickenpox) Immunity
Posted Monday, March 5, 2018 by Shelly Nye
It is now required that individuals newly enrolling into school or being admitted into childcare provide evidence of Varicella (chickenpox) immunity upon entrance. This requirement will only impact individuals being admitted to child care or enrolling into a school in Nevada after June 30, 2018. A written statement from a physician attesting to a person’s positive history of Varicella or laboratory proof of Varicella immunity is acceptable in lieu of Varicella vaccination documentation.
