State Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2. C.R.S. 25-4-902 requires students to be immunized prior to attending school unless exempted by law.
While the vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are in development, the need to protect children from vaccine preventable disease (VPD) is a high priority in Colorado. Because of the concern of potential VPD outbreaks during COVID-19, the Colorado Board of Health school-required immunization rules remain in place.
Parents are encouraged to contact their health care providers to inquire about routine well-child visits during COVID-19, or to reach out to their local public health agencies to know when immunization services are available in their communities.
