Students with Disabilities

New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements.

As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. This legislation is in response to the measles outbreak and will help contain the spread of measles among unvaccinated students.

All prior religious exemptions granted to students are now invalid. Please see the Parent Immunization Letter from the DOE for more information.

All NYC students must meet the immunization requirements in order to attend school. You can review the immunization requirements online at on the Immunizations page. Please review the Immunization Chart and Parent Immunization Letter  to ensure that students are in compliance with requirements for the school year.

Immunization requirements 

  • New York State Public Health Law requires students to get certain vaccines in order to attend childcare or school. Before the school year begins, all students should receive all required immunizations.
    • In addition, we encourage families to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccines. They are safe, free, and available regardless of immigration status. All New Yorkers aged 6 months and up are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Families can find information on the NYC COVID-19: Vaccine page.  
  • In accordance with Chancellor’s Regulation A-710, all students entering DOE public schools for the first time, from kindergarten through twelfth grade, must submit a New Admission Examination form (CH-205)–completed by a health care provider– to their school nurse. 
  • Any students needing to take medications or receive any medical treatments must have a Medication Administration Form (MAF) and/or Medically Prescribed Treatment Form (scroll down on the page) that must be submitted every year. For more information onhealth servicesin school, visit the Health Services page.
