The "Load Defaults" button on this page has been adjusted to load PreSchool/Child-Care values as well as TK/K-12 values.

Changes have been made to the vaccination requirement logic to ignore age-based requirements if a grade-based requirement exists that applies to the current student's grade-level, as to not disqualify a TK/K-12 student based on being under 60 months (which is the high age in months for most PreSchool/Child-Care vaccination requirements). Also the age in months logic was inaccurate when a student's birthday was in the current month but had not yet occurred, fixed.
