Welcome to the NHCAC Head Start/Early Head Start Health area. The health area consists of myself, Carol Larrabee LPN Health Services Manager and Luz Hernandez, Health Assistant. We are here to ensure every child in the NHCAC HS/EHS program is in optimal health for learning, which includes up to date immunizations, annual physical exams and a dental exam every 6 months. We are available to answer your health questions regarding Head Start policies, NJ Vaccine requirements and NJ Child Care Regulations. All children must receive the flu vaccine between Sept – Dec or they will not be able to attend in January. The flu vaccine is mandatory in the state of NJ for every child from 6 – 59 months of age that attends a childcare facility.
For your guidance on NJ childhood immunization schedule please see below. I have also included our physical and dental forms.
