2016 Yearbook Ad Notice
A Message from the NYC Department of Health
We would like to make you aware of changes to child care and school immunization requirements in effect for the 2015-16 school year in New York City (NYC). Highlights of the changes are as follows:
· Students entering grades K through 12 are required to have 2 doses of measles- and mumps-containing vaccines, and 1 dose of rubella-containing vaccine.
· Students entering grades K, 1, 6 and 7 are required to have 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine. One dose of varicella vaccine is required for all other grades.
· Students entering grades K, 1, 6 and 7 are required to have 4 doses of polio vaccine, unless the 3rd dose was received at 4 years of age or older, in which case only 3 doses are required. Three doses of polio vaccine are required for all other grades.
· Students entering grades K-5 who are less than 7 years of age are required to have 5 doses of DTaP. Four doses are acceptable if the 4th dose was received at 4 years of age or older and 3 doses are acceptable if the series was started at age 7 years or older. Because DTaP cannot be administered to children after age 6 years, children aged 7 years and older who are not complete should receive a single dose of Tdap and, if additional doses are needed, Td until series completion.
The full requirements are attached below and available at www.nyc.gov/html/doh/downloads/pdf/imm/sch-med-req.pdf. The school requirements are in alignment with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations with respect to number of doses required of each vaccine and the spacing intervals between doses; see www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules. In most cases, if the CIR record says that a child’s immunization status is up-to-date (UTD), then that child may be considered UTD for school, as well. Alternative schedules and philosophic objections to vaccinations are not allowed. Students who are not in compliance with school immunization requirements will be excluded from school.
Additional information on the new school requirements, including Frequently Asked Questions, is available at: www.health.ny.gov/prevention/immunization/schools/. If you have questions about immunization requirements for school admission, please contact us at (347) 396-2400 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for keeping NYC children safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.

As we head into summer, we want to inform you of a valuable program that can help young people throughout Staten Island stay safe. The Drug Drop Box program, a partnership between the NYPD and the community, allows any adult over 18 to bring unwanted or expired prescription pills to any NYPD precinct on Staten Island to be safely discarded, no questions asked. This free service is available 24/7. For further information call your local precinct or email PBSI@NYPD.org. Click on the link for more info & flyer: Drug Drop Box Flyer
