Fact Sheet: Senate Bill 20-163 Is Law. Now What?


Senate Bill 20-163, which aims to keep Colorado communities protected from vaccine-preventable diseases through the modernization of school entry immunization requirements, was officially signed into law by Governor Polis on June 26, 2020 and will be implemented for the 2021-22 school year. Supported by the vast majority of Colorado voters, this policy solution is even more important now as our communities face the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new fact sheet developed by Immunize Colorado provides a summary of the new law, its implementation and what it will mean for parents, schools and child care centers, and healthcare providers.
