  5. Provide shot record. Arkansas State Law requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957, to provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. Students must have proof of two MMR vaccines against measles, mumps, and rubella.

    Serologic testing is only applicable to Hepatitis B virus, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella. Any individual who has immunity to Hepatitis B virus, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and/or Varicella, as documented by appropriate serological testing, shall not be required to have the vaccine for that disease.

    A copy of the serological test should be submitted to the Arkansas Department of Health, Immunization Section, along with a letter requesting that the serological test be accepted as proof of immunity in lieu of receiving vaccine for the disease indicated on the serological test. After review by the Medical Director, Immunization Section, a letter indicating approval or denial will be sent to the individual, parent, or guardian, and it will be that person's responsibility for informing the childcare facility, school, or college/university. For approvals, annual approval is not required, and a copy of the letter will be placed in the student's permanent file. For denials, the student must receive the required immunization or request an exemption.
