Reliable Sources of Immunization Information - Where you can go to find answers!


Colorado law requires all students attending Colorado schools to be vaccinated against certain diseases unless a medical or non-medical exemption is filed.
  Parents have the right to exempt their child from school immunization requirements.  Parents need to submit a signed statement of personal or religious exemption annually.  A medical exemption requires a certification signed by a licensed healthcare provider and needs to only be submitted once.

For more information about vaccine requirements, resources and exemptions, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Immunization pages below.
