Vacunas requeridas para el ciclo escolar  

On May 10, 2011, Governor Gregoire signed a bill that requires a licensed health care provider to sign the Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information.

The law took effect on July 22, 2011. It only applies to exemptions requested after this date. A health care provider doesn't need to sign the form for parents or guardians who demonstrate membership in a church or religious group that does not allow a health care provider to provide medical treatment to a child.
Beginning July 22, 2011, parents and/or guardians who want to exempt their child from immunization requirements must fill out an updated form: 
Certificate of Immunization Exemption.   

n 10 de mayo de 2011, gobernador Gregoire firmó una ley que requiere un proveedor de atención médica con licencia firmar el certificado de exención para un padre o tutor eximir a sus hijos de escuela y el niño requisitos de inmunización de cuidado. La firma se verifica que el proveedor le dio la información de padres o tutores sobre los beneficios y riesgos de la vacunación. También puede activar un padre o tutor en una carta firmada desde un proveedor de atención médica indicando la misma información.

La ley entró en vigor el 22 de julio de 2011. Sólo se aplica a las exenciones solicitadas después de esta fecha. Un proveedor de atención médica no necesita firmar el formulario para los padres o tutores que demuestran la pertenencia a una iglesia o grupo religioso que no permita que un proveedor de atención médica proporcionar tratamiento médico a un niño.
Comenzando el 22 de julio de 2011, los padres o tutores que desean eximir a sus hijos de requisitos de inmunización deben llenar un formulario actualizado:  Certificado de Exencion

Vaccine and Disease Information
Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap)

The Tdap vaccine protects teens against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). The vaccine is recommended for all children 11 years and older. Tdap should replace one tetanus booster. Pertussis is a very serious disease that causes coughing spells that make it hard to eat, drink, and even breathe. It can also cause pneumonia, seizures, brain damage, and death.

Varicella (Chickenpox)
Children are required to have one dose(5th-6th Grade) and two(2) doses (K-5th) of the varicella vaccine to protect against chickenpox. Chickenpox spreads easily and can cause serious skin infections, pneumonia, meningitis, and even death.  Even mild cases of chickenpox are uncomfortable; it is difficult to treat itchiness and there is potential for scarring. 

Talk to your child’s doctor, nurse, or clinic for more information on the Tdap and varicella vaccines, or visit: www.doh.wa.gov/cfh/immunize.
