Parents, if you have kids going back to school, listen up.
Along with all the back to school shopping, there's one very important thing you can't forget to get before the school year starts.
And that's mandatory immunizations.
For many Central Texas parents, they've got one thing on their "to-do list" before their kids are ready for back to school.
"Getting last minute shots for school," said Central Texas dad David Good.
Parents like Good, said remembering the date his 14-year-old son Bryce was last vaccinated is a shot in the dark.
"I think it was 2000," said Good.
But the state doesn't take things like school immunizations lightly.
"They said he can't start school without them," said Good.
"We're getting shots because they need them to go to school," said Waco mom Natasha Weeks.
But many parents aren't aware of the consequences that come along if your child isn't vaccinated before the start of school.
"By law the school district will withdraw your child," said Waco ISD Coordinator of Health Services Stacy Johnson.
Meaning your child will not be able to attend school, and you will be held responsible.
After the school notifies you, parents will have no more than 30 days to have their child vaccinated.
But before you can get vaccinated it's always important to make sure you have your shot records with you.
"Before a nurse can give you that immunization, they've got to have that shot record to see what you've had before to know what your needing now," said Johnson.
And as Bryce and his dad, take care of business, there was a little surprise that came along with this visit.
"They told us we had to get three shots and he had to end up getting four," said Good.
There haven't been many immunizations changes from last year to this year.
But if your child is going into the seventh grade you need to make sure they get the chicken pox, meningitis, and tetanus, vaccine.
