The NY State Department of Health (NYS DOH) has recently required all school districts to audit their student immunization database. The purpose of this audit is to ensure each child has been immunized properly by their health care provider. When immunizations are given outside the recommended NYS DOH time table, chances of vaccine failure increase. You will be notified by the School Nurse's Office if there is an interval issue and which vaccines are non-compliant.
