Immunization Info




Immunization:

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has issued School Admission Immunization Requirements.  The law requires that all new students—children entering day care, nursery school, pre-school or pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten through grade 12 in New York City for the first time—must show proof of having received a complete medical evaluation.

Effective Monday, June 10th, Department of Health (DOH) will no longer be issuing yellow vaccination cards to patients.   Instead patients will be given a print out of the vaccination history, vaccines administered at the visit, lot numbers etc. and date of next appointment.  This is to comply with CDC regulations requiring a lot more information than can fit on the current cards.
