Immunization Info

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.

The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) no longer issues yellow vaccination cards to patients at its immunization clinics. Instead, patients will be given a print out of their vaccination history and the vaccines administered at the visit, including lot number and manufacturer of the vaccine. The new immunization record provides more information, is clear and legible, and gives the date of next appointment and information about other vaccines that may be recommended. Parents may continue to provide immunization information to schools by using the completed new entrant examination form (CH-205), a record from the DOHMH Citywide Immunization Registry, a print out of an electronic medical record signed by a physician or nurse practitioner or a signed yellow card.
