Daycare/School Immunization Certificates
Georgia law requires children attending daycare or school to be protected from certain vaccine-preventable diseases. Cobb & Douglas Public Health offer vaccines to protect children and prepare them for school at clinics throughout both counties.
According to the law, parents who move to Georgia from another state and enroll their child in a Georgia school for the first time must provide the child’s daycare center or school with a Certificate of Immunization (Form # 3231) within 30 days of enrollment. This certificate verifies that the child has received the immunizations recommended for his/her age. Certificate of Immunization record transfers are provided to clients for $5.00 per child.
Parents can obtain this certificate from the child’s private physician or local Cobb & Douglas Public Health Center. Parents should bring a complete record of the child’s immunizations in order to complete the certificate. If a child needs additional immunizations to meet the requirements of Georgia law, the private physician or Public Health Center staff can administer these immunizations, and parents can obtain a certificate at the same time.
