 Important Information on Legislation Removing Non-Medical Exemption
from School Vaccination Requirements

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation removing non-medical exemptions from school vaccination requirements for children.

As of June 13, 2019, there is no longer a religious exemption to the requirement that children be vaccinated against measles and other diseases to attend either:

• Public, private or parochial school (for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade), or
• Child day care settings.
