Important Information from Our School Nurses

The Department of Health is changing school immunization regulations beginning in August 2017. The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in the commonwealth are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases. Your child will be excluded from school if required immunizations are not done, where appropriate, within the first 5 days of school. For more information in English or Spanish on the vaccines your child needs to attend school, visit; dontwaitvaccinate.pa.gov, or talk to your child’s pediatrician or other healthcare provider.
