Child care facilities must comply with the annual requirement, which is extended this year to Jan. 31, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance for all individuals to be up to date on their routine vaccinations, as well as the annual influenza vaccine. Many children and adolescents fell behind on routine vaccines and well-child visits during the pandemic. Routine, influenza and COVID-19 vaccines are essential to helping children, students, families and communities stay healthy.
The Nevada State Immunization Program (NSIP) is aware that COVID-19 has changed and continues to impact many aspects of public, private and charter schools, child care facilities and accommodation facilities. Per Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 392.435, 394.192, 432A.230, and 432A.235, each public, private and charter school, child care facility and accommodation facility must submit immunization information to the Division of Public and Behavioral Health every year by Dec. 31.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NSIP is providing a final deadline extension of Monday, Jan. 31, 2022. Visit the Immunize Nevada website linked here to submit your 2021-2022 school and/or facility immunization information.
More resources will be available on the Immunize Nevada website, including instruction packets to assist with the reporting. Also visit the Nevada State Immunization Program’s School and Child Care Immunizations web page.
