Student Immunization Information

Vaccinations are required for children to attend school in Pennsylvania. The Department of Health recently changed school immunization regulations – the provisional period in which students can attend school without their required vaccinations is now five (5) days. The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in Pennsylvania are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases. For more information on the vaccines children need to attend school, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s website or talk to your child’s pediatrician.
