Immunization reporting requirements for child care providers and educators

We recently shared some information with licensed child care providers from the state Department of Health (DOH) about immunization reporting that is required by Nov. 1. According to the DOH, “Washington State law requires Early Learning Programs to complete and file an Immunization Status Report each year by November 1. Programs required to report include licensed Child Care centers, Preschools, ECEAP contractors and Head Start programs. Licensed Family Child Care Homes with 12 children or less are exempt for the reporting requirement.”
We’ve added links to the immunization schedule and reporting requirements to several of our webpages as a resource for families and child care providers:
