Immunization Requirements

The North Caldwell School District follows the New Jersey State Immunization Requirements, which can be accessed by clicking here. Please contact your child's school nurse if you have any questions. Click here for the immunization form to be completed by your physician.

All students attending a pre-school program must receive an annual Influenza Vaccine and one dose of the Pneumoccoccal Vaccine.

Children entering the 6th grade must receive one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis). However, children who received a Td booster less than five years ago, shall not be required to receive a Tdap dose until five years have elapsed from the last dose of tetanus. In addition, every child, after age 11, must also receive one dose of the Meningococcal Vaccine before entering 6th grade.

New Jersey law governs the school immunization requirements and provides that children may be excluded by the school administration for non-compliance.
