• Immunization Requirements for School Entry

    New York State requires the following immunizations for students entering public school in grades  K through 12th Grade:      

    • Polio Vaccine - OPV or IPV - 3 minimum
    • DPT - 3 minimum
    • MMR - 2 minimum
    • Hepatitis B - 3
    • Varicella - 1 or proof that you had the disease (2 are recommended)
    • Hib - 3 minimum
    • Tdap Booster - 1 is required for students born on or after 1/1/1994 and enrolling in 6th and 7th Grade beginning in the 2008 - 2009 School year.

    Some children might have received a vaccine labeled Tetra - this is a combination of DTP and Hib and fulfills the DTP requirement if the child has at least three
