School and Child Care Immunization Data 2018-2019 Information for Parents

As parents, you make important decisions that affect your children every day. Many factors go into your decision about where to send your child for child care or school, and immunization rates may be a consideration for your family. Child care centers and schools with low immunization rates may put your child at increased risk for outbreaks of vaccine-preventable disease.

Colorado Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2 requires public, private and parochial schools that enroll students in K-12th grade, as well as preschools, child care centers and Head Starts licensed for 10 or more children, to report immunization and exemption data to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) annually. This information comes directly from each facility and is not validated by CDPHE.

We developed this tool to allow you to see important immunization information about child care centers and schools in Colorado, including immunization rates and exemption rates. We all strive to do what is best for our children. We believe that parents should be able to make informed decisions based on accurate, unbiased information.

More information about school-required vaccines can be found here. All data are self-reported by each facility, and not validated by CDPHE.
