IMPORTANT: In June 2019, the New York State Legislature amended the state’s laws governing immunizations for school children. This amendment eliminated religious exemptions from immunizations and took effect immediately. For the 2019-2020 school year, all students must receive immunizations as required by New York State Health Law, unless the student’s parent/guardian can obtain a certification from a treating physician that the required immunization(s) would be detrimental to the child’s health.
