IMPORTANT: Vaccination Changes

These are the Dept. of Health and PDE recommendations for immunizations:
*DOH determined that the vaccination rates for PA are low compared to other states.  This is a concern due to outbreaks of measles in California and pertussis (whooping cough) in PA.   Low vaccination rates put the entire population at risk for communicable diseases due to a lowered “herd immunity” (protection for the community against certain communicable diseases that arises when a critical mass of persons are immunized against that disease.  Especially vulnerable are young children and pregnant women).
*The DOH determined that the largest number of non vaccinated children reported to the Department (as part of mandated reporting) were “provisionally enrolled” students.
*Currently – there is an 8 month provisional period in which students can complete vaccination.  Parents can provide verbal information that a child is immune from certain diseases or provide verbal information about a plan to complete vaccinations
*Proposed changes to number or proof of vaccines
    – Polio – addition of one required dose of the vaccine from “three or more” to “four”
    – MMR(measles mumps rubella) and Chickenpox – in the absence of proof of vaccines, the proof of disease can no longer be “history by parent” but must be written documentation by a physician, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant or laboratory documentation.
    – addition for 12th grade students – “one dose of a meningitis vaccine for entry into 12th grade at any public, private, parochial or nonpublic school in the Commonwealth, including vocational schools, IU, special education and home education programs, and cyber and charter schools, or in and ungraded class, for students in the school year that the student is 18 years of age, if the child has not received a previous dose on or after the child’s 16th birthday.”
School district / administrator responsibilities:
*ensure that all students are admitted to school  with evidence of the administration of at least one dose of each antigen has been administered to the child
*ensure that the child receives the final dose of each vaccine series within 5 days of the first day of attendance as evidenced by a certificate of immunization provided by the parent (** it may be worth mentioning that RSD nurses have access to the state data base for immunizations and check that before they are allowed to exclude per my directive and that we are the only district in the country to have a school based Vaccine for Children’s clinic that is not attached to a school based health center)  OR…
*the parent provides a medical certificate (appointment card, verified health care provider note) that the vaccine will be administered on a specific date or can’t be administered due to a medical contraindication.   If there is a plan for vaccinations to be completed, that plan must be reviewed by school personnel every 60 days (minimal).  (**RSD nurses refer students to their primary health care providers, the Berks Community Health Center, the Dept. of Health, Berks Visiting Nurses and the clinic at Lauer’s Park.)
Note – these laws are not applicable if the child is verified as homeless or if they are moving within PA and cannot produce the records, in which case they have 30 days to produce the immunization  records.  (The thought is that they attended school somewhere else in PA and therefore should have records of immunization).
This is an unfunded mandate….   per the DOH… “The savings in the prevention of an outbreak of a childhood illness in a school district should outweigh the minimal cost in staff time.”   


The following is a list of all required vaccines:

All Students Are Required To Have:

4 doses of Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (in combined vaccine form)

4 doses of Polio

2 doses of Measles, Mumps, Rubella (in combined form)

3 doses of Hepatitis B

2 doses of Varicella (Immunity can be proven with laboratory titers or a note from a health care provider documenting disease.)

1 dose of Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV)

Note from Brent & Krista Fox Family

Greetings from MI! We are doing well, and continue to enjoy our time here.  Brent is still acing all his tests (including the big, important FAA airframe test he took in April) and staying at the top of his class. The children and I finished our year of homeschooling (!!) and are looking forward to a laid-back summer & crossing things off our “To-Do in Michigan” list.  One highlight recently was spending a weekend in Chicago with our old neighbors from Cotton Street.   As we head towards the end of our year here, please pray with us as we make decisions for our future from here.  Thanks!  - Krista Fox

Remember Clarence Horst in your prayers.
