The Pennsylvania Department of Health has revised the immunization requirements for students effective the 2017-2018 school year. The revision replaces the 8-month provisional period for immunizations with the new requirement of a 5-day provisional period for students who do not have records of immunizations at the start of the required school year.
Prior to August 2017, a parent had 8 months to complete all required immunizations. This period is called the provisional enrollment.
