Immunizations are an important part of our children’s healthcare. The Utah Immunization Rule for Students, Rule 396-100, requires that children attending school or childcare facilities be vaccinated against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. State law requires that unless for personal, medical, or religious exemptions, a student may not attend a public, private, or parochial kindergarten, elementary, or secondary school though grade 12, or early childhood programs, including nursery or preschools, licensed daycare centers, childcare facilities, family home care facilities, and Head Start Programs.
To learn more about the Utah Immunization Rule for Students, download the Utah Immunization Guidebook for Schools, Early Childhood Programs and Healthcare Providers.
State law also requires that schools and early childhood programs collect immunization information and report immunization data annually. Data is collected to determine which schools and childcare facilities are in compliance with state law and to determine how many children are adequately immunized.
