School immunization information for school nurses

School nurses and other childcare professionals are vital partners in ensuring Massachusetts children are fully vaccinated and protected from serious diseases.

Each year, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) conducts a survey of immunization rates in all child care programs and public and private schools in the state. The purpose of this survey is to ensure that all children enrolled in these facilities are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases.
