Colorado law requires all students attending Colorado schools and licensed child cares to be vaccinated against certain diseases, unless an official exemption form is filed.
Beginning July 1, 2016, new official exemption forms are required and must be submitted more often (Colorado Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2).
There are several options you can use to submit the forms. You must file an exemption form for each school or child care the student attends. Outdated or alternate forms are not allowed. For the safety of unvaccinated children, students with an exemption from one or more required vaccines may be kept out of a school or child care during a disease outbreak.

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