Immunization Awareness

Are you ready to school to start? Make sure your child's vaccines are up to date. West Virginia state law requires proof of certain vaccines before a child can be entered into day care or kindergarten. Getting vaccinated at the right age is something that parents are responsible for to protect their child from diseases or illnesses. At all ages of childhood, from day care to college age, parents should check their child's vaccination history to see if anything is out of date.

With schools having so many people in and out, they make for a good place for diseases to spread. Children are more prone to catching something since they tend to have poor hand washing habits and forget to cover their mouth when coughing.

Each state has different minimum requirements for each stage in life. Those charts can be found on the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources website or at this link. Their mission is to prevent and control vaccine-preventable diseases in West Virginians. The Division of Immunization Services provides a program for eligible children to receive free vaccines. If you would like more information regarding vaccines or the VFC program, please call the Department of Immunization Services at 1-800-642-3634.
