Targeted Vaccinations: Vaccination Requirements
Task Force Finding*
These laws or policies require vaccination or other documentation of immunity as a condition of attendance (childcare, school, or college), residence (residential or long-term care facilities), or employment (health care).
The Task Force finds insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of vaccination requirements when implemented alone in improving influenza, pneumococcal polysaccharide, or hepatitis B vaccination coverage among high-risk adults because no qualifying studies were identified.
