School and Child Care Immunization Exemptions

Washington state law now requires a licensed health care provider to sign a Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian wishing to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information. For more information see WA-DOH.

  • Washington State Immunization Information
    Since 1990, the Washington State Immunization Program has provided vaccines to all children under age 19, regardless of income, through a combination of state and federal funds. In October 1994, the federal government provided an additional funding source - the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. This Federal Entitlement Program was developed to eliminate cost as a barrier and improve immunization levels. The VFC Program also helped to increase the likelihood of immunizations being provided in a child's medical home. Eligibility for this program is defined as children younger than 19 years of age who are either American Indian/Alaskan Native, uninsured, underinsured, or Medicaid-enrolled. The federal VFC Program has become a critical funding source for vaccines.

Flu

Flu season can begin as early as October and last as late as May. October or November is the best time to get vaccinated. For more information contact your health care provider or pharmacy and visit the following links:
