If you've moved from a different state, do you generally have to get a new physical done in your new state (for the school) or do you have to get one done in the state to which you moved?

It looks like we will be moving quickly, and I'm trying to figure out if I need to get this done before we move or shortly after.

I had one done, but found out I didnt need to - the school used their forms from their previous school/state that indicated their immunizations.

I made sure I had complete immunization forms for my kids before we moved, only to find out I couldn't register them for their new schools unless the information was on a state form for our new home. That was easily handled though, I took everything to the health department, and they transferred it over, no charge.

I have never heard of physical for school children. All we have to provide where I live in an updated immunization record. What does this physical involve?

The only time I think that a physical would be in order is if you had a teen doing a sport requiring one. They may ask for it in the new area. I wouldn't worry about it but definitely have your updated immunizations in hand and do not rely on the school for transferring them. Also, if you have a teen with credits, you will want a copy of the transcripts before you leave. My Husband, myself, and other people have had credits lost. It is hard to fight once you are there. Dig up the birth cirtificate & social security cards just in case. Better yet find out from the school you will be going to what is required. There may be something that wasn't thought of.

doesn't have to be in the state you moved to. I moved from CT to VA last month and we had the physicals done in CT and it was perfectly fine for VA. Check with the school system where you are going though...
