East Wenatchee, WA - Chelan-Douglas Health District is urging parents to make sure their kids’ immunizations are up-to-date before heading back to school this fall.
Students could be excluded from schools if there is an outbreak of a disease they are not immunized against. See all required vaccinations for K-12, child care and preschool.
All immunization records turned in to schools or child care centers are required by state law to be medically verified. Examples of medically verified immunization records:
For the 2021-2022 school year, all students from grades 7–12 must have had one dose of the Tdap vaccine.
Students ages 12 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. Getting your child vaccinated against COVID-19 will help protect others who are not eligible, including children under 12. People who are vaccinated are not only protected, but vaccines can help keep people with no symptoms from spreading COVID-19 to others.
The Childhood Vaccine Program provides vaccines at no cost to kids younger than 19. Parents should be aware that health care providers might charge an office visit fee. By law, no child can be turned away from a recommended vaccine by their regular health care provider because the family cannot pay.
