Getting your child vaccinated helps protect others in your community—like your neighbor who has cancer and cannot get certain vaccines, or your friend’s newborn baby who is too young to be fully vaccinated. When everyone in a community who can get vaccinated does get vaccinated, it helps to prevent the spread of disease and can slow or stop an outbreak.
Vaccinations are important for people of all ages. Please call the Panhandle Health Department to review the recommended vaccine schedules.

*Panhandle Health will not be doing Immunization Clinics this year, but all school-required vaccines are available to students by appointment. Make sure to bring your child’s immunization record to the clinic to be reviewed and updated.
We understand that when it comes to keeping your children and family healthy, there is a lot of information available. Learn which immunizations your child or family members need, where to get your family immunized, and how to obtain a copy of your child’s immunization records.
The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare partnered with the Idaho Immunization Program to answer some of your most common questions.
Schools are required to report certain diseases to the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare for tracking purposes, determining disease impact, monitoring trends in disease, and guiding prevention strategies.
EXEMPTIONS: Pursuant to Idaho Code 39-4802, parents may submit to school officials a signed statement exempting their student from any or all of the required immunizations for medical reasons or for religious or other objections. Medical exemptions must be signed by a physician licensed by the state board of medicine. SELECT THIS LINK for the Idaho School Immunization Requirements Exemption form.
