New Student Health Information
Please provide any relevant health information at the time of admission such as allergies, disabilities, chronic illnesses, medication requirements or physical activity concerns. Parents of students with health and wellness concerns will meet with the Health Services Coordinator at the time of admission to develop an Emergency Care Plan for their child.
All students must be up to date with their immunizations and a copy of their history provided. The required vaccinations for AES are Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertussis, Polio, Hib (PK and KG only), Measles, Mumps & Rubella and Hepatitis B. We also recommend that your child is up to date with Rabies, Varicella, Rotavirus, Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Pneumococcal, Japanese Encephalitis and Human Papillomavirus (aged 9 and above).
A physical examination must be completed by a licensed practitioner and submitted within the 3 months prior to admission and will be repeated when students enter Grades 1, 6, 9. Students participating in competitive sports are required to complete a physical examination every two years.
Students are required to have tuberculosis screening within 3 months prior to admission to AES and every two years thereafter.
No BCG (TB) vaccination– This is completed by a PPD Mantoux test or a Chest X-ray (CXR). If a student has history of a positive PPD Mantoux test and has completed the treatment course they would require a chest X-ray for clearance.
With BCG (TB) vaccination– This is completed by an examination of the chest to confirm no active symptoms of TB
If a student has had their BCG vaccination within the last 5 years, they do not require a TB screening; please make sure the Health Office has the BCG date recorded. BCG (TB) vaccinations are not required for AES
General Health Information
You will receive an email notification every time your child visits the Health Office. If your child needs to be picked up from school or we feel it necessary to speak with you further, we will contact you by phone.
Epipens and Food Allergies
Epipens are not available in India. If your child requires an Epipen please bring a supply from your home country.
We are committed to ensuring that we provide an environment that maximizes the safety of our students and protects those who have allergies.
- All staff dealing with students are Epipen trained and Epipens are available in each student cafeteria.
- Students are encouraged to wash their hands before and after eating.
- We actively discourage sharing of food and snacks between students.
- Emergency Care Plans are developed for all students with severe allergies.
Local hospitals and doctors
We have developed relationships with various hospitals and doctors in Delhi, based upon positive experiences from within our AES community. We have a ‘Medical Provider List’ which will be available to you at the New Student Orientation or from the Health Office.
