Q. My family is getting ready to move to a new state. Is there anywhere I can check to see immunization requirements in our new state?

A. Yes. The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) website allows you to view state immunization laws for vaccine-preventable diseases in childcare facilities, schools, colleges and long-term care facilities, as well as which states allow pharmacists to administer vaccinations. The IAC also has a convenient list of all state immunization websites parents can use to find more specific information.

Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.

You should not consider the information in this site to be specific, professional medical advice for your personal health or for your family's personal health. You should not use it to replace any relationship with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional. For medical concerns, including decisions about vaccinations, medications and other treatments, you should always consult your physician or, in serious cases, seek immediate assistance from emergency personnel.
