The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends vaccination requirements for child care, school, and college attendance to increase vaccination rates and reduce rates of diseases that vaccines can prevent. These requirements are laws or policies that require people to get vaccines or prove that they’re immune to certain diseases. The requirements may be statutes or administrative rules at the state level or policies adopted by institutions like colleges and private schools.
