For BES Immunization Forms, go to the Health Office Forms page.

Flu/Influenza Vaccine – Required for all preschool students

New Jersey law requires that every child six months through 59 months of age attending any licensed preschool facility shall annually receive at least one dose of influenza vaccine between September 1st and December 31st of each year.

Children who have not received the flu vaccine by December 31 must be excluded from school for the duration of the influenza season (through March 31) or until they receive at least one dose of the influenza vaccine.

Meningococcal Vaccine & Tdap – Required for all incoming 6th graders

New Jersey Law Chapter 14, which establishes the immunization requirements for pupils in schools, requires children enrolled in Grade 6 to have a Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap vaccine (given no earlier than the 10th birthday).

Please check your child’s vaccination status. If you have a physician documented immunization record for either of these vaccines, please forward it to the health office. If your child does not have these vaccinations, we recommend you schedule an appointment now to ensure your sixth grade child is immunized before school opens in September. Please note: if we do not have this immunization documentation prior to the start of your child’s sixth grade school year, your child will be denied entrance to school until these requirements are met.
