Student Voluntary Verification of COVID-19 Vaccination Form
In order to remain open and in-person as much as possible during the 2021-22 school year and to limit the number of potential quarantines that may be ordered by Herkimer County Public Health, Herkimer BOCES is asking you to let us know if your child has received a COVID-19 vaccine by filling out the Student Voluntary Verification of COVID-19 Vaccination Form.
If your child is exposed to a confirmed, positive case of COVID-19 at BOCES this year and they are fully vaccinated, they probably won't have to be quarantined, as long as they are not showing any symptoms. Having this information ahead of time helps us work with Herkimer County Public Health and could result in less time out of school for your child.
This information is being collected as anonymously as possible, and does not mean that any student or employee is required to receive any COVID-19 vaccine.
