Immunizations are an important part of our children’s and the community’s health. Colorado law requires students attending a public, private or parochial school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. Colorado follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices schedule. This schedule is approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. This is the immunization schedule which will best protect your child from vaccine-preventable diseases and is the national standard for health care providers who vaccinate your children.
