Healthy Kids - Vaccinations

Making sure your child is up-to-date on all his or her vaccinations is essential for back-to-school health. In order to even enter kindergarten, there are a number of required vaccinations children must receive, though they vary from state to state. Check with your school system for specific requirements. Additionally, in New York, children must receive the booster for whooping cough in order to enter middle school.
