Student Health/Medical Information
A while back I saw some questions flying around about how a district would store health/medical information of students in PowerSchool.  There were a couple of ways to do this, either use a third party system or create custom pages/screens with all the necessary fields in PS for your data.  I was never really a fan of either but with the release of PowerSchool 6.1 and Health Management, it may satisfy the requirements you are looking for to manage your student’s health records.  If you want to implement this in your district, download PowerSource article 59166.
 
If you want to take a quick peek, here are a few quick notes on setup.  All immunizations, screening and grade level entry certifications are defined in the district office under District Setup.  You must enable the “Health” screen for each security group.  System --> Security --> Groups --> Select Group (example Nurses).  Now give appropriate access rights to that group.  I gave our nurses View/Modify/Delete for Certification and Screening and View/Modify for Immunization under the Health and Immunization section.  Don’t forget to check the checkbox “Health” under the Accessible Student Screens for access on student pages.  Scroll and hit submit.  As with Incident Management, I believe you will be able to generate reports from ReportWorks at a later date.

I do not see a plus or add sign on the immunization screen I am failry sure i have all access set up correctly to read/write and delete if an option. Any other ideas.

   
Just for kicks, go to School Setup --> Miscellaneous under General --> Uncheck Show student photo on student screens.  Submit and try it again.  PowerSource ID: 59031  It seems fixed with 6.1 here but who knows.  If that doesn't work did you try to disable customizations.  Lastly, image server -> did you copy over the new scripts/images etc?
