Attention Parents - Changes to the NYS School Immunization Requirements effective July 1, 2018
New York State has made changes to its school health exam schedule as well as requirements for the meningococcal vaccine, effective July 1, 2018.
Beginning July 1, 2018, all New York State public school students must have a health exam when they enter school as a new entrant and in Pre-K or Kindergarten and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. These examinations MUST be completed on the new required NYSED Student Health Examination Form for School.
Medical providers’ offices may not yet be aware of the change, so the Cato-Meridian Central School District encourages parents to bring the official NYSED Health Examination Form with them to their child’s appointment. You can download the required health exam form by clicking HERE at the NYSED website or simply go to the bottom of this page and download the updated health form.
