Schools & Child Care

Immunization Assessment & Promotion

Diseases that can be prevented by vaccines remain major causes of illness and death for people of all ages in the United States. Schools and child cares play a critical role to protect children and the public against certain vaccine-preventable diseases.

Program Overview

Washington State school and child care vaccination requirements serve the purpose to reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable disease and their associated negative outcomes by increasing vaccination rates. All child cares and schools are required to report their immunization status by November 1 of each year. The Immunization Assessment and Promotion program at Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) provides local support to schools and child cares regarding immunization record collection and review, mobile immunization clinic coordination to address vaccine gaps among their student population, and state vaccine and vaccine education requirement satisfaction.
