All children must have a current health statement or health record signed by both parent and physician. In addition to the required Annual Health Statement, all children at GECC and J Camps must provide proof of immunizations in accordance with the most current immunization schedule adopted by the State of Texas before the first day of school/camp. A child’s enrollment process will only be considered complete once immunization records from a physician or clinic have been reviewed and approved by the GECC or J Camp. Immunization records must remain current for a child to attend school or camp.
We recognize that individuals who have had a documented allergy or severe adverse reaction to a particular vaccine, or with a documented medical condition, may not be able to complete the immunization schedule in the time frame adopted by the State of Texas. In these extremely rare circumstances, a written and signed statement from a physician (M.D. or D.O.) licensed by any state in the United States, and who is board-certified in the subspecialty of allergy/immunology, infectious disease, or hematology/oncology, will be required. These statements will be reviewed and approved/declined by an anonymous team of physicians selected by the JCC.
An exemption from immunizations for reasons of conscience will not be accepted.
