Vaccine Safety 
  •  Vaccines are held to the highest standard of safety. 
  • The United States has the safest, most effective vaccine supply in history.
  • Vaccines are continually monitored for safety and effectiveness.                          

Pennsylvania's school immunization requirements can be found in 28 PA Code Ch.23 (School Immunization)                                 


Proof of immunization means a written record showing the dates (month, day, year) your child was immunized.

Keep a record of your child's immunizations.  Keep this record in a safe place.  Your doctor's office, medical clinic, or hospital may ask for this record.  As your children become adults, they may need the record for college, for their job or if they travel out of the country.
