Immunizations and new MMR law
Are your kids ready for school? The Department of Health put together the attached chart of the required immunizations for the 2019/20 school year. This year the Washington State Legislature passed a bill that removes the personal and philosophical option to exempt children from the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine required for school and child care entry. The law also requires employees and volunteers at child care centers to provide immunization records indicating they have received the MMR vaccine or proof of immunity. If your child has a personal exemption for the MMR vaccine, make an appointment with your health care provider to discuss your options for meeting this new requirement.
