All Wyoming Connections Academy students must provide evidence of their immunizations on
one of the following:
These forms must be stamped or signed by a health care provider.
If those options are not successful, an Authorization to Release Health Records form can
be completed. If the immunizations are in the Wyoming
Immunization Registry (WyIR), this form will allow the Immunization Program to
provide a copy of the record.
Please refer to the Wyoming School Immunization Requirements provided
on the Wyoming Department of Health website.
Immunizations can be obtained from doctor’s offices, clinics, or hospitals. Pediatricians
and family doctors or their nurses or medical assistants can give your student the shots
he or she needs to meet the requirements for school enrollment. In addition, some large
chain pharmacies offer immunizations for older children and adults.
According to the Wyoming Department of Health, "there are multiple ways to obtain
immunization records." The quickest method would be to contact the primary care provider
or the last school attended. Schools will generally not keep immunization records for
more than a year or two, at the longest, until graduation. After a student graduates,
records are sent to the Wyoming State Archives and can be retrieved with a phone call 307-777-7826.
For a directory of Wyoming-based providers, please review the Public Health Nursing
Office and Private Physicians, Hospitals, Rural Health and Federally Qualified Health
Centers, and Other Providers webpage.

reduced immunizations through this program:
