Vaccines Required by the State of Washington for School or Daycare

MBC_PRIMARY_MC21_1143Vaccines protect your child from potentially life-threatening diseases such as diphtheria, measles, polio, and pertussis (whooping cough.)

Your child will need certain vaccines to attend daycare or school, according to Washington state law. Based on the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), all children must receive the required doses they are eligible for prior to starting school.

Children who have not completed the entire series before the start of school will be granted conditional status. This means they will be allowed to attend school if they continue to get the remaining doses within 30 calendar days of the recommended immunization catch-up schedule.
