NECSD Exclusion Date for Non-Compliant Students
As per the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), as we look ahead to the upcoming 2021-2022 school year, we want to remind you that we expect schools to fully comply with PHL Section 2164 immunization coverage and reporting requirements. As partners in prevention, we all need to remain vigilant to protect the children in this state against all vaccine-preventable diseases. As we all continue to face challenges related to the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are aware that some students may have missed doses of vaccines that were due this past year. Most primary care providers and Local Health Departments have now resumed administering routine vaccines. Therefore, NYSDOH expects any students who missed doses of vaccines due to COVID-19 to receive any overdue doses within 14 days after entry into the 2021-2022 school year, regardless of in-person or remote school attendance; this may be extended to 30 days for students transferring from out-of-state or another country.
The NECSD exclusion date for all students non-compliant in their immunization status, whether in-person learning or virtual learning, will be excluded on 9/23/2021.
