Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Why should my child care provider care about my child's immunization status
Answer: Immunizations are a critical way to protect children from several diseases. In addition, the law (Idaho Code 39-1118) requires children in child care to be immunized and that documentation of immunizations or exemptions be given to your provider. Child care providers are required to have on file an up-to-date immunization record for every child in their care. If your child attends child care, they are required by law to be immunized within 14 days of enrolling in the child care. This not only protects your child, but protects the other children in the child care. If you have questions, contact the local health district or talk with your physician.
