CDC Creates Database of State Immunization Laws

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently created an online database of state immunization laws for health care workers and patients in health care settings. The database includes information on laws that require assessment of vaccination status as well as requirements to provide or administer vaccines. It includes the 50 states and Washington, DC, and is current through September 2007. The State Vaccination Laws database is intended for immunization program managers, health care providers, advocacy groups, legal and public health researchers and policymakers, and the general public.
