Immunizations

Schools are required to have an immunization record on file for every student enrolled. This must be either an official certificate of immunization which can be found by clicking: www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/immunization-forms ,the official medical exemption form or a documented non-medical exemption. Medical and non-medical exemption forms can be found by clicking: www.colorado.gov/vaccineexemption.  If parents choose to exempt their student, the district encourages using the non-medical exemption form when possible, however, parents/guardians and students over the age of 18 may submit a signed non-medical statement of exemption which must include the following information: 

  • Student's full name
  • Age or date of birth
  • Date the exemption was submitted
  • The vaccines declined
  • Which type of non-medical exemption is being taken (personal beliefs or religious)

On January 17, 2007, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Board of Health approved additional vaccine requirements for children in schools related to Varicella/Chickenpox and Tetnus/Diptheria/Pertussis (Tdap).

Parents should consult their family physician to determine if their child's immunizations are up to date or if any additional immunizations are needed to meet current requirements.

A schedule of immunizations and/or a Certificate of Immunization may be accessed from the Colorado Department of Public Health's website.
