I am writing today to provide you with an important update from NYS DOH regarding Executive Order 202.95 regarding vaccination reporting requirements.

Yesterday, the NYS Department of Health released an email advisory announcing that schools and school districts are not required to collect vaccination data or report vaccination of teachers at this time.

Specifically, NYS DOH stated in an email:

“Executive Order 202.95 requires reporting of vaccinated teachers beginning on Wednesday, February 23 and weekly thereafter.  Please be advised that schools and school districts are NOT required to report this information at this time, and additional information will be forthcoming. As such, schools and school districts are not required to request reporting of vaccination status or information by employed teachers or other staff at this time.

Additional information regarding this Executive Order will be forthcoming.”

This announcement delays the reporting requirement stated in Executive Order 202.95, which requires reporting of vaccinated teachers beginning on Wednesday, February 23rd, and weekly thereafter. NYS DOH advised that additional information regarding the implementation of the  Executive Order will be forthcoming.  We will provide you with updates as we have them.
