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 disease can be accepted for the following:
    • MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella)
    • Polio, but only if the test was performed before September 1, 2019, and all three serotypes were positive
    • Hepatitis B positive blood test for surface antibody
    • For varicella (chickenpox), evidence of varicella antibodies, laboratory confirmation of varicella disease, or diagnosis by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner that a child has had varicella disease is acceptable proof of immunity to varicella.


Important Information From the Nurses Office:

 If your child requires nebulizer treatments, please provide the nurse with: MD order, medication and the tubing with a mouthpiece.

• Kids with asthma may carry their rescue inhaler with them if the nurse has a MD note on file indicating that this is okay. We strongly recommend that a back up inhaler be housed at the nurse’s office. Please tell your child to notify the nurse early if they are using the rescue inhaler more than once in the day so that she can monitor his/her lungs and avert a crisis.

• With documentation from a medical provider, a student may also carry rescue medication, such as epipens, and medication for management of diabetes, on their person.

• Medications administered at school must be carried into the nurse’s office by an adult. The medication must be presented with a MD script indicating school hour’s administration, a written parental request for school administration and be in the original container; same rules apply for over-the-counter medication.

• State laws prohibit us from giving any medication without a MD order. School nurses do not have supplies of Tylenol, Motrin, Midol… in their offices.

• If your child has a medical condition (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, allergy…) please let us know!
