For more information about immunizations, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health webpage "About the Division of Immunizations."

  • Immunization booklet
  • Official school record or written statement from the former school district

These forms must be signed by the parent or legal guardian and, if applicable, by a health care provider.

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:

  • Vaccines for Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. Children who are eligible for VFC vaccines are entitled to receive pediatric vaccines that are recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
Immunization Exemptions

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.

Charter School Student Enrollment Notification Form

Please complete and sign (by hand) the Charter School Student Enrollment Notification Form, which is used for notification of a student attending Reach Cyber Charter School, a charter school.
