Immunization Exemptions for School Year 2016-2017

  • On February 23, 2016, the Office of Early Childhood at the Colorado Department of Human Services sent out a message to child care facilities, at the request of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Immunization Branch staff.

    This message was to provide information about a service CDPHE promised to provide schools after the passage of recent Board of Health rules establishing a new frequency for submitting vaccine exemptions. The intent was to let child care facilities know about CDPHE's service to collect exemptions centrally but the message included a wording oversight on our part. The message indicated that parents MUST submit their exemptions online when the message should have said "parents/guardians wishing to submit non-medical exemptions for children attending Colorado schools and licensed child cares SHOULD do so online at" We apologize for the confusion this may have caused.

    If you have additional questions, please contact the CDPHE Immunization Branch at:


    Parents requesting a personal exemption to immunizations must fill out a form via CDE annually:
