School officials in Philadelphia are reportedly prepared to start doing home visits for students that have not provided medical records showing that they are up-to-date on their vaccines.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:

Over the summer, parents of Philadelphia students got phone calls, text messages, and letters reminding them to have their children vaccinated. By Monday’s deadline’s for immunizations, the district may start planning home visits to families that have not provided medical records or sought exemptions.

District officials on Thursday said they want to minimize the number of students who are excluded from attending school for vaccine-related reasons. This year, students were given 60 days to provide their records or obtain a religious, medical or philosophical exemption.

Apparently, the home visits are seen as necessary because the school district changed their policy that allowed school officials to send children home who were not vaccinated. This was the method previously used as “an effective way of forcing families to provide the medical records.”

Karyn Lynch, the district’s chief of student support services, said that as of this week, about 3,600 children were not yet in compliance with school policies, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
