Garrett’s Law

Garrett’s law was enacted in 2004.  It mandates schools provide parents and guardians with information about meningococcal meningitis and influenza and the vaccines that protect against these diseases. The law was expanded in 2007 to mandate that information also be provided about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the vaccines available to protect against HPV.

The following materials are available to support this effort. Additional materials are available at each of the disease specific pages.
