Required Vaccines for School

Immunization Reporting During Pandemic

  • Schools that anticipate they will reopen (at least partially) later in the school year when it’s possible should plan on collecting immunization records, notifying parents of missing immunizations, and participating in immunization reporting and exclusion.  
  • Schools that are planning on exclusive online learning for the full school year will be able to count these students in the “not counted” category of the immunization report. They are still encouraged to collect immunization records in preparation for in-person learning next school year.

Washington County works with schools and day cares to make sure kids are up to date on their vaccines in accordance with school law. All certified day cares, preschools, Head Start programs, private and public schools are included to ensure student and faculty safety.
