There's already plenty on your to-do list as you prepare for the start of another school year in Portsmouth.
Supply lists, summer reading, back-to-school clothes, athletic forms... they all stand out. In the midst of these things, don't forget that there are some state-mandated medical requirements as well.
Whether your child is headed to preschool or to college, the state has a series of required vaccinations based on your child's grade. At various ages, doses of vaccine for hepatitis B; polio; meningitis; mumps, measles and rubella (MMR); and others are required.
