The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) proposed modifying the immunization requirements for children in child care and grades K-12 through the rulemaking process and published the Notice of Intent to Adopt on April 29, 2013 in the State Register. See the links below for more information on the process.

Since the last revision to the law in 2003, there have been several changes in federal immunization recommendations, which include scheduling changes and new immunizations. The department's primary objective is to update Minnesota's Immunization Rules to reflect the new, evidence-based federal immunization recommendations.
