Kids Must Have Shots To Start School

New York State health officials are reminding parents about a change in immunization requirements for youngsters entering the school system.
As of September 1, 2015, the State Department of Health requires youngsters to receive a complete series of shots for measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), polio and tetanus/diptheria/pertussis before they can start classes.
Youngsters who have received initial doses of the vaccines will be able to attend classes only if parents can prove they have scheduled appointments for final doses, state health officials said.
