Child Care

Create a Healthy Environment Through Immunizations

Welcome to our child care provider page.

We know there are many questions that you and your parents may have when it comes to childhood immunizations. Our site is here as a resources that can assist you and your center with up to date immunization information and also the latest updates on ASIIS (Arizona State Immunization Information System) and the child care module.

For Staff Members

Vaccines are not just for the kids. A vaccinated staff member means not only will they not bring the disease to your center but they also will not bring it home to their family. Healthy employees are happy employees! Staff should receive the below listed vaccinations.

  • Annual flu shot
  • Tdap vaccine – one time booster dose (tetanus, diptheria and pertussis)

For Centers

We understand that many parents have questions regarding immunizations – the schedule, the vaccine ingredients, the number of doses, safety questions, and the list continues. This site is here to provide you with resources and hopefully some answers to the hard questions, all based on the science of immunizations.

Thanksgiving usually means sharing food and fun with family and friends. But this year, we need to modify some traditions to avoid an uninvited guest - COVID19 - so mask up, wash up, stay apart. You're best bet is to celebrate at home or online.

Five weeks ago, just over 6,100 COVID-19 cases were reported in Arizona. Last week, almost 18,000 cases of #COVID19 were reported. This is a 194% increase. You are safer at home. Assess your risk each time you leave your home. https://1.azdhs.gov/36LGShG
