Sun Dragon Vaccination Policy
As an entity, Sun Dragon prioritizes a welcoming and healthy environment for all of our community members. As such, at the recommendation of the Texas Department of State Health Services, we choose to adhere to Texas Immunization requirements. Immunization requirements are determined by the state legislature and set by the Texas Department of State Health Services, in conjunction with the Texas Education Agency. Maintaining adequate immunization rates is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of all Sun Dragon Participants.
Health Safety Policy
Entering students will not be allowed to register for classes, even during trial sessions, until attesting that the Participant has received immunizations per CDC and AISD guidelines. Participants are required to fill out a Medical Waiver before their trial class and/or member registration, which contains a field to attest your immunization status.
You are strongly encouraged to consult with a physician about the need for immunizations before requesting an exemption. All students must comply with this requirement except those who meet the qualifications for exemption as noted below:
- You cannot take the vaccine because of medical reasons. Before you will be allowed to register for classes, Sun Dragon’s administration must receive a signed affidavit or certificate signed by a physician who is licensed to practice medicine in the United States, which states that, in the physician’s opinion, a particular vaccine would be injurious to your health and well-being.
- You decline the vaccine due to reasons of conscience, including a religious belief. Before you can register for classes, please speak with the Executive Director about this exemption.
