LUBBOCK,TX (KCBD) - Just because school is out doesn't mean your assignments are finished. Well at least for parents   a new summer assignment must be completed before school starts back up in September.

The Texas Department of State Health Services released new school immunization requirements that will be effective August first.  The new requirements will include additional vaccines before kindergarten and a few added booster shots before entering the 7th grade.

 Each is required before school starts in the fall.  If you would like to see a list of the new immunizations that will be needed for the 2009-2010, clickhere.
