Idaho State Requirements for Vaccinations

The Idaho School Immunization Law requires that children be up-to-date on their immunizations (shots) to attend school. Diseases like measles and whooping cough spread quickly, so children need to be protected before they enter. Most children need booster shots before starting kindergarten.
