  Section 1. Section 2164 of the public health law, as amended by  chap-
ter 401 of the laws of 2015, is amended to read as follows:
  S   2164.  Definitions;  immunization  against  poliomyelitis,  mumps,
measles, diphtheria, rubella, varicella, Haemophilus influenzae  type  b
(Hib),  pertussis, tetanus, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease,
INFLUENZA VIRUS, and hepatitis B. 1. As used in this section, unless the
context requires otherwise:
  a. The term "school" means and includes any public, private  or  paro-
chial child caring center, day nursery, day care agency, nursery school,
kindergarten, elementary, intermediate or secondary school.

include his  father  or  mother,  by  birth  or  adoption,  his  legally
appointed  guardian, or his custodian. A person shall be regarded as the

because  the  parents  or  legally  appointed guardian of the minor have
died, are imprisoned, are mentally ill, or have  been  committed  to  an
institution,  or  because  they have abandoned or deserted such child or
are living outside the state or their whereabouts are unknown,  or  have
designated the person pursuant to title fifteen-A of article five of the
general obligations law as a person in parental relation to the child.
  d.  The term "health practitioner" shall mean any person authorized by
law to administer an immunization.
