To assess immunization coverage rates for children and workers at DHS-licensed center-based child care facilities in accordance with state regulations.
All parents/guardians of children attending a center-based child care facility must provide documentation that their child is up-to-date on required vaccines. Child care workers must also provide documentation that they are up-to-date on required vaccines.
Each year, licensed child care facilities are required to submit immunization status data for employees and for children ages 19-59 months. Not all child care centers responded to the survey, so results may not reflect the entire city/town.
