Hainesport Township School District

According to New Jersey Administrative Code 8:57-4 each school district must ensure that the district does not knowingly admit or retain a student whose parent or guardian has not provided documentation of all required immunizations.  The links below outline all required immunizations for school attendance in New Jersey.
 
  • Preschool Immunizations
    • All students up to age 59 months attending preschool must receive an influenza vaccine between September 1 and December 31 of the current school year.  Failure to show documentation of the influenza vaccination will necessitate the student being excluded from school beginning January 1 through the remainder of the flu season (March 31).  See the Flu Vaccine Information Statement for additional information.
 
  • K-12 Immunizations
    • 6th grade students: The Department of Health and Senior Services adopted the following regulations which began September 1, 2008:
      • Students born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering Grade 6 will be required to receive a booster Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) vaccine.  This requirement is designed to help reduce the number of outbreaks of pertussis (whooping cough) in previously vaccinated children in the 10-19 year age bracket.
      • Students born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering Grade 6 will be required to receive on dose of meningococcal vaccine to reduce the risk of bacterial meningitis.  Please see the information guide below.
