School Required Vaccines

Colorado law requires students to be vaccinated before attending school.  This includes day care and college.  The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has set up a webpage, School Required Vaccines, which explains all you need to know about back-to-school vaccinations.

Starting this year, parents who wish to exempt their children from vaccinations will need to fill out an exemption form.  The forms and accompanying information are available on the CDPHE website.

Finally, the state has a program to allow children from low-income families to receive their vaccinations free of charge.  For information, see the CDPHE’s Vaccines for Children webpage.
