ATTENTION PARENTS: Changes to NYS 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. Please see the immunization schedule below.
To prevent Communicable Disease and due to New York State requirement, all students must be immunized; no student will be allowed to attend the Baldwinsville Central Schools without proof of the following minimum requirements:

Acceptable proof of immunization should be provided in a form of certificate from physician or clinic specifying types and dates of immunization or disease; or blood test results that shows proof of immunity. When a range exists, the NYS Department of Health may require your child to receive the higher dosage listed in the chart below.

You can download a PDF of these requirements HERE.

After June 21, please send proof of immunization to the school nurse where your child will be attending school in the fall. Proof of immunization must be any 1 of the 3 items listed below:
  • An immunization certificate signed by your health care provider
  • Immunization Registry report (NYSIIS or CIR from NYC) from your health care provider or your county health department
  • A blood test (titer) lab report that proves your child is immune to the diseases
    • For varicella (chickenpox), a note from your health care provider (MD, NP, PA) which says your child had the disease is also acceptable.

Kindergarteners without proof of starting their immunizations may NOT start school. Telling the nurse the date and place of shots does not help. New York State requires actual proof (signed documents) of beginning the mandatory immunizations.

The school nurse will contact kids delayed in their immunization schedules. Once again there are clear standards that require evidence of continuing immunizations as mandated.
