School exclusion day is coming up. On February 17, children who are not up to date on vaccinations will be unable to attend in-person school or child care.

If your child is missing vaccines, it's time to catch up!

Shots are required by law for all children in schools, preschools and child care facilities. Parents will be sent a letter if their child’s vaccination records are incomplete.

To avoid missing school or child care, get your child up to date on their vaccinations as soon as possible. School immunization requirements»

Vaccines Are Essential

Vaccines keep your child healthy and protected from serious diseases. During Covid-19, it’s still important that your child’s vaccination schedule stay on track.

Clinics and doctor’s offices are taking extra steps to make sure that visits happen safely during Covid-19.

Where to Get Your Child Vaccinated

You can get your child’s shots at their regular health care provider.

If your child doesn’t have a regular health care provider or if you can’t get an appointment, you can get them vaccinated at one of our clinics:
