Child’s Proof of Immunization
All Reach Cyber Charter School students must provide evidence of their immunizations, or provide a Statement of Immunization Exemption, as required by the state of Pennsylvania, to be eligible for enrollment. For more information about immunizations, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health webpage "About the Division of Immunizations."
Acceptable Proof of Immunization (all types require the student's name, date of birth, and vaccine dose and date information):
- Immunization booklet
- Official school record or written statement from the former school district
- Healthcare provider or Health Department printout
- Reach Cyber Charter School Immunization Record/Statement of Exemption
These forms must be signed by the parent or legal guardian and, if applicable, by a health care provider.
If you do not have one of these documents, please contact the Enrollment Team at 800-382-6010 to discuss acceptable alternatives.
Not Sure What Immunizations Are Required?
Where Can I Get Immunizations for My Student?
Immunizations can be obtained from your local health department, doctor’s offices, clinics, or hospitals. Pediatricians and family doctors or their nurses or medical assistants can give your student the shots he or she needs to meet the requirements for school enrollment. In addition, some large chain pharmacies offer immunizations for older children and adults.
What if I Need Assistance Paying for Vaccines?
If you need assistance paying for shots/vaccinations, you may be able to get free or reduced immunizations through the Pennsylvania Vaccines for Children Program:
A student may be exempt from immunizations for medical reasons or religious beliefs.
- Medical Exemption: Students need not be immunized if a physician or his or her designee states, in writing, that immunization may be detrimental to the health of the child. When the physician determines that immunization is no longer detrimental to the health of the child, the medical exemption ceases to be valid and the child must be immunized.
- Religious Exemption: Students need not be immunized if the parent or guardian objects, in writing, to the immunization based on religious beliefs or strong moral/ethical convictions.
