CDC's State Vaccination Requirements:

State Immunization Laws Database This tool contains results from a 50-state legislative review of laws requiring assessment of vaccination status and vaccine administration for healthcare workers and patients/residents. The review was conducted by CDC in 2005 and collected data on laws for the following types of facilities: hospitals, ambulatory care facilities, individual providers' practices, correctional facilities, and facilities for the developmentally disabled.

CDC 2001-2002 publication "reflects state laws, regulations, or rule making that impose vaccination requirements for enrollment and/or attendance in day care, Head Start, kindergarten, grades 1 through 12, colleges, and universities." (35 pages - .pdf file). Go to:
