  • Students may not attend school without acceptable written proof (including dates) of immunizations. Section 2164 of the New York Public Health Law requires the following:

    • 4 or more doses of diphtheria toxoid (DPT or DT)
    • 3 or more doses of trivalent oral polio vaccine (OPV) or inactivated polio vaccine (IPV)
    • Live measles vaccine given after 12 months of age
    • Live rubella vaccine given after 12 months of age
    • Live mumps vaccine given after 12 months of age
    • Second dose of measles (MMR) mandated for Kindergarten and above
    • Haemophilus Influenza Type B (Hib) (prior to enrollment in any prekindergarten program)
    • Pneumococcal Conjugate vaccine (PCV) (prior to enrollment in any prekindergarten program)
    • Hepatitis B (3 doses) mandated for all students prekindergarten – 12
    • Varicella Vaccine mandated for students in grades PreK-12
    • Varicella Vaccine #2 mandated for students in Kindergarten, first, second, sixth, seventh and eighth grades
    • Tdap Vaccine is mandated for 11 year olds entering grades 6 through 12 who did not receive it in grade 6

    Proof of adequate immunization must include dates of inoculation on a stamped physician certificate.

    Medical exemptions require a stamped physician certificate. State religious exemption forms may be obtained from the school nurse.

    Children may be admitted to school provided they submit a physician-verified appointment to receive a mandated immunization. School nurses will monitor compliance and students will be excluded from school if appointments are missed.

    Note: Students registering in the spring of the year before enrollment must be fully immunized before the first day of school.
