With the start of the new school year approaching, parents should be aware that the New York State Department of Health and the New York State Education Department recently updated immunization requirements for children entering/enrolled in public school. Among the changes are requirements that all children have their complete series of MMR, DTaP and polio immunizations prior to beginning the school year. Previously, the final doses of each vaccine could be administered up until age 6.

An outline of the 2015-16 immunization changes is available: VIEW IT HERE

Parents should consult with their child’s physician regarding their child’s immunization schedule. Immunizations must be completed by the first day of school in September or your child will be excluded from school.
