Students who attend school in New York State must be immunized against polio, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), measles, rubella and Hepatitis B (now required of all students entering Kindergarten), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and varicella.
Attention parents of 12th grade students: New York State mandates that every school aged student be properly immunized in order to attend school. On October 26, 2015 the NYS Public Health Law Section 2164 was amended to require children entering 12th grade to receive an adequate dose or doses of the vaccine against the meningococcal disease. Please contact your child's health care provider in order to receive further information and arrange for any required immunizations. Please forward a copy of your child's updated immunization records to the Health Office.
