Immunizations are an important part of our children’s health care, and Colorado law requires that children going to school be vaccinated to prevent vaccine-preventable disease.   As a parent, it is important to know that in addition to the vaccines required by the state of Colorado Board of Health for school entry, there are vaccines that are recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This is the immunization schedule that will best protect your child from even more vaccine-preventable diseases.

Schools work hard to ensure compliance with the immunization laws. Your help in providing updated immunization records at school registration and when your child receives additional vaccine(s) is greatly appreciated. Please discuss your child’s vaccination needs with your child’s doctor or local public health agency.   Please bring your child’s updated immunization records to the school each time your child receives an immunization.

Under Colorado law a student may be exempted from immunizations if they have submitted a signed medical, religious or personal exemption.
