Student immunizations required by Friday

School vaccine deadline Friday

A reminder that Friday is the deadline by which City School District of Albany students must meet all immunization requirements to attend school.

New York State law requires every child attending public school to be vaccinated against measles and other diseases that are easily spread. The law also says your child cannot attend school if he or she is missing a required vaccination after the first 14 days of school.

You can get a list of required school vaccinations here.

Your child's doctor will know which immunizations your child is due for and can schedule an appointment to get the required vaccinations. You also can reach out to the nurse at your child’s school for more information.

If you do not have a regular health care provider, the Albany County Health Department can provide the required vaccination(s). You can call (518) 447-4589 to schedule an appointment.
