Required Vaccinations

The date of immunizations or illness must be on file with the school nurse prior to school entry.

Washington State's School Immunization Law RCW 28A.210.080 requires documentation of immunization at the time of school registration. A completed certificate of immunization status (CIS) (Spanish) or certificate of exemption (COE)(Spanish) signed by the parent/guardian must be on file at the school on or before the student's first day at school.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to obtain the required documentation, complete the form AND turn it in to the school before the student can start school.

Minimum Entry requirements for school attendance:  Immunization Requirements - WA State Department of Health.

If your student's immunizations are deficient, the school nurse will contact you. Please be sure to notify the school nurse of all up-dates. 

Immunizations are available from your own health care provider, Community Health Centers and local pharmacies.  Where to Obtain Immunizations.

Immunization Record Sharing with the Washington State Department of Health: Washington State Immunization Information System (WAIIS)

The Northshore School District is part of a state immunization record tracking system that includes immunization data from area doctors’ offices and health care providers. The district is transitioning all immunization documentation and record keeping to the Washington State Immunization System (WAIIS).  This information system makes it much easier for us to get copies of your child’s immunization record, a requirement for school entry under Washington State law.  This information is used solely to help protect your child and prevent disease by improving the quality and timeliness of records and services in our community. The information can only be shared with entities authorized by Washington law (RCW 70.02) to receive it, such as doctors, nurses, public health entities and schools (Family Educational Records Privacy Act). In addition, the information can only be used for immunization record keeping.

Parent permission is required to share immunization information with WAIIS which can be provided by signing the CIS form. In an effort to update the WAIIS with your child’s current immunization records, we require healthcare provider verified documentation of some or all of your child’s immunizations.

Parents and guardians have access to the WAIIS through a new web portal called MyIR. This secure online system pulls data from the WA Immunization Information System (WAIIS) and will auto populate your child’s Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) with immunizations contained in the IIS. Parents can print, sign, and submit the CIS to the school or preschool/child care. Information about this new system can be found at Immunizations - WA State Department of Health.
