Pennsylvania School Law requires a medical examination by a physician for all students entering kindergarten, 6th-grade, and 11th- grade, as well as all new students to Pennsylvania schools regardless of grade level.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires all children to have a dental examination upon entry into school (kindergarten or 1st-grade), as well as in 3rd- and 7th-grade.

Both medical and dental examinations must be completed within one year prior to the beginning of the school year.

Pennsylvania State Law also mandates that all children entering school be immunized. Parents must bring proof the following records of the following immunizations with them at registration. Children must have the following:

  • Four doses of Diphtheria and Tetanus Vaccine (DTaP, Td, or DT). The fourth dose must be administered on or after the fourth birthday;
  • One dose of Diphtheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis Vaccine (Tdap) at 7th-grade;
  • One dose of Meningococcal (MCV) at 7th-grade;
  • Three doses of Polio Vaccine;
  • Two doses of Measles containing vaccine. The first dose must be given on or after the first birthday;
  • Two doses of Mumps, one dose of Rubella Vaccine. These are usually given as MMR;
  • Two doses of Varicella Vaccine or physician verification of having had Varicella disease

            (chickenpox). The first dose must be given on or after the first birthday;

  • Three doses of Hepatitis B Vaccine (HBV);
  • One test for Tuberculosis completed within the last six months of admission to school, or a

            physician notation on the physical form that the child is “low risk” for tuberculosis.

The law permits medical, moral or religious exemptions if the appropriate forms are completed and kept on record at the child’s school. These forms may be obtained by contacting the child’s school nurse. Students with medical, moral or religious exemptions may be excluded from school in the event of an outbreak of vaccine-preventable diseases.
