Students and families may use any of the below options to provide their one-time proof of vaccination directly to their teaching artists at the school.

    • NYC Vaccination Record or other official immunization record from within or outside the U.S., including from your health care provider. A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable. If you are unable to get this record, call 311.
