IMMUNIZATIONS

 

IMMUNIZATIONS

New York State Law requires all students beginning school to show proof of immunizations.  All dates must include month, day, and year. This information must be in English.  It must include a doctor's signature and stamp including address and phone number: Your child may not attend school without this information. 

New York State Law also requires that PreK students have a blood lead level in their school health file. There is a space for this information on Great Neck's immunization form. Please make sure your child's doctor includes this information.
