If you have school aged children, you'll want to know about new immunization requirements that took effect on Tuesday.

The revised regulations do not add any new vaccines, but update the number of doses required and the minimum time between those doses.

They apply to daycare, head start, nursery, Pre-K and grades K-12.

The State Health Department has a list of common questions and answers, as well as a vaccine schedule, posted on its website.
