Vaccine Policy is Changing for Families New to WUMP
We believe that the health and safety of all children is our highest priority. In order to protect the health of the infants and vulnerable children in our care, as well as the pregnant women in our community, WUMP updated our vaccination policy as of January 2019. An increase in the number of families who are opting out of vaccinations due to reasons of conscience could put us at risk for not being able to provide community immunity for our families. The goal of our new policy is to maintain at least a 95% vaccination rate among our students.
Starting with 2019 summer and fall registration, any new families who register at WUMP must provide a current vaccination record before their child will be able to attend school. A child will not be able to attend class without a complete vaccination record that meets the Texas Health and Human Services guidelines. Families with children who currently attend WUMP will be grandfathered in to the policy. We will continue to accept the waivers due to conscience from those families only.
