New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements

New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements Go Into Effect August 1, 2017

Beginning August 1, 2017, parents will have a significantly shorter time frame to provide proof of vaccination, due to changes in school immunization regulations by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Previously, families may have had up to 8 months to provide proof of immunization.
