I – 057 Can a child be denied entry into Head Start if they are not up to date on their physical or immunizations?

No, there is no Head Start Program Performance Standard that requires a child be up-to-date on their physical or immunizations prior to entering the Head Start program. However, some states prohibit a child from entering a child care center until they have a physical and/or meet State immunization requirements and in these situations a program would have no choice but to not enroll the child until the child had received all required health services.
