Immunization Law & The Creek

On June 30, Senate Bill  (SB) 277 passed, which changes the immunization requirements for children entering both public and private schools, eliminating the ability for parents to choose to opt out of immunizations with a personal beliefs exemption.

 This goes into effect for all children who enter school after January 1, 2016.

The Creek Preschool currently ALLOWS FOR PERSONAL BELIEFS IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTIONS, and WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO FOR CHILDREN ENROLLED IN OUR PROGRAM UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2015.   As of January 1, 2016 we will require that all children enrolled in the program have full immunizations in compliance with state law.

HOWEVER… if you are enrolled with us before January 1, 2016 you WILL NOT HAVE TO UPDATE YOUR IMMUNIZATIONS AS LONG AS YOU REMAIN AT THE CREEK!  The law allows for those who are enrolled by the Jan. 1 deadline to be ‘grandfathered in’ with the old requirements until they change schools.

You can read the entire Department of Public Health’s notice on SB277 here, which goes into more details.

As the time approaches for the law to go into effect, we will update here as more details on enforcement and possible adjustments occur so that you can remain informed.
