Immunization Info

  •  

    New York State Law requires that all students receive immunizations to protect them against certain vaccine preventable illnesses.

    The law requires parents / guardians to give the school an immunization (shot) record that shows their child has received, or has appointment(s) to receive the required vaccine(s) (shots) in order to attend school.  This record may be from a health care provider, health department, or an official immunization record from the child's former school. The record must include:

    1.      Name of the vaccine

    2.      Date vaccine given

    3.      Who gave it, along with their title; or where it was given if at a clinic

     Please contact your health care provider to make sure your child has what they need to attend school this fall. 

     

    Your child's record must be in their school health office by August 24th for review by the school nurse.
