Immunize Colorado has released a toolkit on immunization policy for Colorado child care programs to support child care administrators in their efforts to comply with state immunization laws and keep students and child care staff protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Specifically, the toolkit aims to help child care administrators understand Colorado’s child care entry immunization requirements and their role in implementing these requirements. The new toolkit contains:
- FAQs surrounding Senate Bill 20-163: School Entry Immunization and how this new law impacts licensed child care programs,
- Immunization policy recommendations for child care programs,
- Template policies and messaging tools directed toward parents and caregivers, and
- Vaccine education resources
These tools can be used and customized by child care administrators as is helpful to their programs and communities.
