Updated Immunizations Requirements
On October 12, 2020, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) is the entity charged with enforcement of the requirement that schools comply with Public Health Law § 2164. NYS DOH finds there has been difficulty in obtaining required vaccinations as a result of the COVID19 pandemic, resulting in inability for some students to meet the vaccination requirements. NYS DOH is therefore suspending enforcement of required vaccinations for students to attend school for a period of 30 days, only for students attending school exclusively remotely, if such student intends to obtain the required vaccinations in the coming 30 days. For students using remote learning exclusively, if a school does not receive proof of all required vaccinations by 30 days from October 12, 2020, the school shall not permit the student to attend, including through remote learning, until such proof has been received.
