Delaware County Medical Society Summer 2017 - 21

There are four scenarios that can occur when your child's
immunization history is reviewed by the school nurse:
*

If your child has received all of the above recommended
doses of vaccines, you are in compliance and do not need
to take any further action.

*

If your school-aged child is not up to date on his/her
vaccines as listed above and is able to medically receive
the recommended doses within the first five days of
school, he or she MUST receive the needed vaccinations
or risk being excluded from school.

*

If your child is not in compliance but it is too early to
vaccinate him or her with the next dose in a particular
series, a "medical plan" - a red and white card- must be
provided to the school within five days or risk exclusion
from school. This red and white card has to be signed by
your medical provider and should contain a plan to bring
your child up to date with the immunizations. This card
can be downloaded at: http://www.health.pa.gov/
My%20Health/Immunizations/Documents/SIR3.pdf.
School officials will then monitor this plan to ensure
compliance in a timely manner.

*

If your child has a medical exemption or if you have a
religious/philosophical issue, this information should be
documented and provided to school officials.

If you have further questions about these changes, please contact your doctor immediately or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.
