    New York State Immunization Update

    On 6/13/19, NY State enacted an amendment to public health law section 2164 that eliminates the exemption from vaccinations due to religious beliefs for school attendance.  In summary, as of June 13, 2019, there is no longer a religious exemption to the requirement that children be vaccinated against diseases to attend school.  Students that had a religious exemption must now receive their first age appropriate dose in each immunization series by June 28, 2019 to attend or remain in school. Also, by July 14, 2019, parents and guardians of such children must show that they have made appointments for all required follow-up doses.  New York State summarizes the law by clicking on the following link New Vaccination Law

    Administering Medication during School and School Activities

    The New York State Department of Education, the Board of Education, and the Nurse Practice Act, regulate the administration of medication to children during school hours. In addition:

    1. All medication must be prescribed and a written order be provided to the Health Office by your child’s healthcare provider; this includes non-prescription medications.  Please see medication administer approval form below.

    2. With few exceptions, e.g., EPI-PENS for an anaphylactic reaction, metered dose inhalers for asthma or diabetes management supplies, all medications must be stored in the school's Health Office.  For these few exceptions, healthcare provider and parent/guardian approval for SELF-CARRY must be provided.  Please see medication administer approval form below.

    3. Parents/Guardians must provide a written request approving the administering of medications. Please see medication administer approval form below.

    4. Prescription and non-prescription medications must be in a container dispensed by your pharmacist, labeled with your child’s name and exact dosage or in original packaging.

    5. Parents/Guardians (not students) are expected to bring any medications to school and pick it up when it is no longer required. Students are not allowed to carry medications on the bus.

    6. Over the counter medications (non prescription including creams and ointments) also require a healthcare provider’s order. Parents are required to provide the medication, deliver it to school and sign the permission form.

    7. Medication must be picked up at the end of the school year or it will be disposed of according to New York State guidelines.

    8. All medications and their orders are only valid for a single school year. 

    Please call the nurse in your child’s school if you have any questions regarding these requirements and expectations.
