Over the past year, there have been a number of changes regarding school immunization requirements. Any student who does not meet the NYS immunization requirement for school attendance and does not have a medical exemption, will not be allowed to enter school at Union-Endicott. This includes access to remote learning.
For kindergarten and grades first through twelfth, the following are required:
- Four doses of the polio vaccine, unless the third dose received at four years of age or older.
- Two doses of varicella vaccine, except twelfth grade, which is only required to have one.
- All students entering sixth through twelfth grade are required to have the Tdap vaccination.
- Additionally, there are Polio, Dtap, Hepatitis B, and MMR vaccine intervals for grades pre-kindergarten through twelve.
Students entering seventh and twelfth grade are also required to be immunized against meningitis. If a child is new to New York state and entering eighth, ninth, or tenth grade without one dose, then he/she must be immunized. Please note: all vaccinations must be given at appropriate intervals per CDC recommendations. In all cases, we advise that you work with your child's provider to determine if your child has already met the vaccination requirement.
The student and their family must provide proof from a physician or clinic showing compliance with the NYS immunization requirements for school attendance.
