Education Law 914(1) requires that every child attending school submit proof of the immunizations required by Public Health Law 2164. The table below lists the required immunizations.
PARENTS MUST PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF A CHILD’S VACCINATION BEFORE HE/SHE CAN BE ADMITTED TO SCHOOL.
All of the above immunizations must be documented by your health care provider, health department or be an official copy of the immunization record from your child’s previous school. All immunizations must specify the exact month, date and year when administered.
YOUR CHILD REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING IMMUNIZATIONS TO ENTER SCHOOL:
Insured children should be seen by their primary physician for immunizations.
The Orange County Health Department offers immunization free of charge to uninsured children at 33 Fulton Plaza, Middletown. Please call 346-1113 for an appointment.
Please take all immunization records with you when going for your appointment.
Your child will be excluded from school if they do not meet these requirements.
Return the missing immunization information to the school health office. If you have any further questions or concerns about immunizations, please feel free to contact the school nurse. Thank you.
