Oklahoma State Kindergarten Immunization Survey
Each year, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH), in collaboration with the Oklahoma State Department of Education and schools throughout the state, conducts a survey to assess vaccination coverage and exemption status of children enrolled in public and private kindergarten programs.
Participation of schools in this survey is not only essential to capture immunization rates among children, but analysis of this data drives public health policy and program activities to improve vaccination coverage in our state. Aggregate results are also shared with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for inclusion in the national kindergarten survey report. We appreciate the time and effort of our education partners in participating in the annual survey.

Q: How often is the kindergarten survey completed?
A: The survey is distributed annually for school participation. Q: How will the Oklahoma State Department of Health know which schools or childcare facilities have children with exemptions enrolled in case of a disease outbreak that might impact enrollees with exemptions?
A: In the event of a disease outbreak that might impact any school or childcare facility in Oklahoma, a representative of the local county health department or the Oklahoma State Department of Health will contact the school or childcare with instructions on informing the parents if the disease is a risk to any students including those with exemptions.
All children two months of age and older must present an immunization record or file for an exemption before they are allowed to attend childcare or school in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma's Immunization Act was passed by the state legislature in 1970.
