Attention Parents: Changes in Immunization Requirements for 2017-2018 School Year

 
The New York State Department of Health has issued new immunization regulations for the 2017-2018 school year.
 
Parents, please note that all students must have proper immunizations to begin the school year. If your child has not received the immunizations or required doses listed below, please call your child’s doctor to make an appointment as soon as possible.
 
If you do not have insurance or you have Medicaid, the Onondaga County Immunization Clinic will continue to be available from 9:00 am to 12 noon every Wednesday morning to give immunizations. It is located in the John H. Mulroy Civic Center (421 Montgomery Street, basement level, Room 30). Please bring your child’s immunization record with you.
