I’m writing to be sure that you all know of NYC regulations for children re: the influenza vaccine.
Specifically, children 6 through 59 months of age attending a NYC DOHMH-licensed childcare facility, including daycare, nursery school, Head Start and pre-K, in New York City are required to receive at least one dose of influenza vaccine by December 31st of their school year.
If your child has not yet received a flu shot this season, please be sure to schedule an appointment by December 31, 2015 at the very latest. Also, we will need documentation from your child’s doctor that she/he has received this vaccine to keep in your child’s file.
Thanking you in advance for your cooperation!
