Hi Everyone,

I have a question about vaccine exemptions in NY state. If your child has had the chicken pox, do you still need to have an approved exemption for this vax? Or does the fact that the child has had the chicken pox make them exempt?

I am new to all of this so am just trying to figure out all this works. Thanks for any info!

You would just need to show proof (adequate titres or a doctor's visit confirming CP) that the child has had CP.

Demonstrated serologic evidence of either measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B or varicella antibodies is acceptable proof of immunity to these diseases.

Diagnosis by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner that a child/student has had measles, mumps, or varicella diseases is acceptable proof of

immunity to those diseases.

 

 

Medical exemptions are for  cases where a child cannot get the vaccine for a medical reason/problem, not because they have had it before
