Physical Examination

Every child entering a New Jersey school is required to have a physical examination by a doctor.  The state also requires proof from your doctor that the child has received certain immunizations before entering school.  These requirements are 4 DPT, 4 Polio, and 2 MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella).  The last doses of DPT and Polio must have been given after the child's fourth birthday.  In addition a varicella vaccine is required or documentation of having had the chicken pox and the hepatitis series must be completed. The full date - day, month, and year - is required for each immunization.  Children transferring in from out of state or out of the country may need a Mantoux test as well. Please speak to the nurse to see if this is required for your child.
