Immunizations

Vaccinations help protect people from the risk of disease, especially infants who are too young to be vaccinated, and children and adults whose immune systems are weaker. Vermont's Immunization Program works with families, health care providers and community partners to make sure children and adults are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases by increasing immunization coverage levels.

The School Entry Immunization Rule sets immunization requirements for entry at public or independent kindergartens, elementary and secondary schools.

As an adult, it is important to stay up to date with vaccinations to reduce your risk of preventable illness.

If you plan to travel outside the country, you may need immunizations to protect yourself against diseases that aren’t common in the United States.

Very high immunization coverage is necessary to prevent the spread of many vaccine preventable diseases.

Vaccination coverage, or the percent of people who have received particular vaccines, is measured at national, state and local levels.
