Child Care and Preschool Immunization Reporting

Schools, preschools, and child cares must complete and file an immunization status report to the Department of Health by November 1 of each year. WAC 246-105-060.

For the 2021-22 school year reporting will be due December 1, 2021.

Do not report on children in child care who are attending kindergarten through 12th grades. The immunization status of these children will be reported by their public or private school. Instructions for kindergarten through 12th grade reporting are available at Public and Private K-12 Schools Immunization Reporting.
