Proof of adequate immunization must include dates of vaccination on a stamped New York State physician certificate or be entered in the New York State database. Effective June 2019, New York State no longer accepts immunization exemption for religious reasons.
Children may be admitted to school provided they submit a physician-verified appointment to receive a mandated immunization within 2 weeks. School nurses will monitor compliance and students will be excluded from school if appointments are missed. Note: Students must be fully immunized before the first day of school.
