Vaccinations for Children


Children through 18 years of age may be eligible for free vaccines. The Kansas Immunization Program works in collaboration with local health departments and other health care providers to reduce or eliminate vaccine-preventable diseases that can cause disability and death.

What immunizations will my child need to attend child care or school?

Learn more about vaccination for school and childcare entry at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment School Information website. 

What if I am a parent who wants to learn more about child vaccines in general?

The CDC has created an interactive website for parents seeking more information about vaccinating their children. On the CDC Vaccines for Your Children website, you will find specific information about vaccinating your child by age range (e.g., pregnancy, newborn, 1-2 months, 6 months) and can access a quiz to determine what vaccines your child might need.
