Immunization Guidelines

Don’t Wait to Vaccinate!

Immunization regulations implemented by The Pennsylvania Department of Health are in place for the 2018-2019 school year.  The regulations shorten the provisional enrollment to the first 5 days of school. What this means for our students is that the boosters for new kindergarten students, students entering 7th grade and students entering 12th grade need to be received as soon as possible, but before the first five days of school, or your child risks exclusion from school.  The new guidelines do not change the regulations allowing a child to obtain an exemption from immunizations for either religious or medical reasons.   

      School nurses recommend scheduling an appointment with the child’s doctor as soon as possible.  Proof of immunizations should be forwarded to the school nurses. Any child not meeting the state requirements for immunizations will be excluded from attending school according to the Pennsylvania law, so please don’t wait to submit the required documentation.

     Please refer to the Weatherly Area school webpage for more detailed information or email the school nurses with any questions.
