The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) recently sent out communications to families regarding routine vaccinations not being up-to-date. Please view the link at the bottom of this message for the state information regarding this message.
If you would like to double check your child’s immunization status you can view their immunization record. This is easiest via the web instead of through the MyChart app. Go to pediatrics5280.com and click ‘login to mychart’. After logging in, switch the user from yourself to your child. Click the menu and select health summary. Click the link ‘view printable immunizations’.
After their 4 year well child visit, children should have 2 MMR vaccine and 2 Varicella vaccine dates listed, and after their 5 year visit they should have 5 DTaP vaccine and 4 IPV (Polio) vaccine dates listed. This could vary if your child received vaccines elsewhere or your child had a different vaccine schedule.
If you believe your child is overdue for their vaccines, please send a separate MyChart message to the nurses, or call our office to speak with a nurse.
