Child Care Facilities

Note: The due date for submission of the childcare reports has been extended to February 1, 2021.

All children in North Carolina must be vaccinated against certain diseases. Immunization records are checked when a child enters a child care facility.

CDC is pleased to offer a new slide deck called “How Your Child Care Program Can Support Immunization.”  This presentation is intended for use by health departments, coalitions, Child Care Resource & Referral agencies, and other organizations that provide training for child care programs at the state and community level. Organizations are invited to customize the presentation with their own slide template, logos and state-specific information. 


Find out what vaccines children need before attending a child care and view resources for child care facilities.
