Florida Statute 1003.22 requires each child entering a Florida school for the first time to present a certificate of immunization from a licensed practicing physician or the county health department prior to entry into school.
Prekindergarten and kindergarten students must have current immunizations and physical examinations before registration. Seventh-grade students have five school days to become compliant with immunizations or they will be excluded from school. Other students, including children enrolling under emergency or homeless conditions, will be allowed 30 days from the registration date to present the certification requirement. All immunizations must be recorded on the Florida Certificate of Immunization (Form DH 680), printed or handwritten on white or blue paper.
Florida requires that all immunization shots are up to date. This can be accomplished using the student's primary care physician, local clinic, or the health department. The Flagler County Health Department offers free immunizations at their walk-in clinic.

The 3040 physical form may be completed by the student's primary care physician or a local clinic.
If a student is transferring from another Florida school district, the physical form used for entry into that district may be used. If a student is transferring from out of state, the date on the physical form must be within one year from the enrollment date and must include a vision and hearing screening.
