Student Immunization Changes for 2017-2018

posted Apr 26, 2016, 8:47 AM by Blake Byall   [ updated Aug 10, 2017, 4:58 PM ]
Beginning July 1, 2016 the Colorado Board of Health has mandated new immunization laws for all students attending public education centers for those students 12 months to 18 years of age.  House Bill 14-1288 has essentially given the State Board of Health the authority to require parents of said children to maintain immunization shot updates on several public health issues, including many diseases that have long been managed through the immunization process.  Kim School will require these records be updated to meet the language of this law and to that effect, we are posting files containing information to help the parents of our children comply with this law.  The files below link to the announcement of the ruling, justification of the process going forward, and instructions for how parents can be exempted from this ruling. The third file contains copies of the forms used to notify and record student immunization in order for students to attend public school--including Kim RE-88. 
Additionally, for those parents wishing to file a religious, medical, or non-medical exemption for your children, the second file below contains links on how to access the Colorado State Government office that provides these forms. 
In Summary:  ALL students wishing to attend Kim School for the 2017-2018 school year need to have their children's immunization records updated and filled out, OR, they need to file the appropriate exemption form stating why this was not done in accordance with the new law. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in this matter.
To learn more about vaccinations within public education please read the following information and feel free to log onto CDE's website:

Colorado law requires all students attending Colorado schools and licensed child cares to be vaccinated against certain diseases unless a medical or non-medical exemption is filed.  For more information about vaccine requirements, resources and exemptions, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s School Immunization page.


Just a reminder that all vaccine exemptions expire on June 30th, 2017 so those parents will have to fill out the online form again after that date!
