Webster Central School District must follow New York State Law as it pertains to the immunization of students attending public schools. Students that are not immunized according to the guidelines set by the New York State Department of Health will be excluded from school. Please call the Health Office if you have any questions in regards to your child's immunization requirements.


6th graders that have not submitted proof of immunization to the Health Office according to the guidelines below will be excluded from school in September.


  • Students who are entering 6th grade and who are 11 years of age or older must receive Tdap vaccine before entering 6th grade. (This vaccine is not the same as the DTaP administered before age 7.)
  • 10 yo students who are entering 6th grade will be permitted to start school without Tdap vaccination, but must be immunized within 2 weeks of their 11th birthday.



  • Students entering 6th grade must receive 2 doses of Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine before entering 6th grade, regardless of age.
  • The 1st dose must be given on or after their 1st birthday in order to be valid.
  • A child does not need to receive these immunizations if the parent submits a statement signed by the child's Health Care Provider which states that the child has had chicken pox disease.




  • Students entering 6th grade must follow the new interval spacing recommendations according to the current ACIP guidelines for Polio vaccination (IPV).
  • Student are required to receive 3-5 doses, with a minimal age for the final dose of 4 yo.
  • Students who require another dose must receive this immunization before entering 6th grade, regardless of age.




*The following immunizations must now follow the ACIP recommendation for interval spacing between doses. Some students may need additional vaccinations to satisfy this new NYS mandate. Note that only 6th graders are mandated to follow these guidelines for Polio and Varicella for the 2014-15 School Year as stated above.
