  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:
  §   2164.  Definitions;  immunization  against  poliomyelitis,  mumps,
measles, diphtheria, rubella,  varicella,  HUMAN  PAPILLOMAVIRUS  (HPV),
Haemophilus  influenzae  type  b (Hib), pertussis, tetanus, pneumococcal
disease, meningococcal disease, 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.

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.
