School Entry Vaccination Requirement

I recently read an article about the vaccination requirements in Texas prior to school entry. In our region, we do not have policies about vaccination requirements, although I think that this is an interesting policy that potentially holds merit in preventing vaccine-preventable illness. I'd like to ask if there is a vaccination requirement upon school entry in your region, and which vaccines are particularly required.

Marinelle Castro Thank you for sharing the article, i think the issue of vaccination is a important one as it is one the public health interventions which has reduced a huge degree of morbidity due to the herd immunity it provide. In Singapore, children need to be immunized in TB, MMR, Hep B, Diptheria, Pertussis, Tetanus . You can find out more about it at https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/dam/moh_web/Publications/...
