Report A Disease
What is reportable?
Utah Law requires that certain diseases and conditions must be reported to Utah public health. Some diseases must be reported immediately while others must be reported within three (3) working days after identification.
Who has to report?
ANYONE with knowledge of a reportable disease is required to report to public health. Most reports will come from healthcare providers, laboratories, healthcare facilities, schools and childcare programs.
Low or no cost immunizations for those who qualify, can bill most major insurance companies. Please bring your insurance card and a copy of the immunizations you have received if available.

Immunizations are one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their children’s health and to prevent disease that can strike at an early age.
Vaccines are not just for infants. As kids get older, protection provided by some childhood vaccines can begin to wear off. Help your child transition into adolescence in a healthy way by staying up-to-date on pre-teen vaccines.
Immunizations are NOT just for kids, we ALL need immunizations to keep us healthy and to help protect our loved ones. Are you unsure what immunizations you need as an adult? Use this assessment tool to find out.
A parent/guardian may claim an exemption to immunization for medical, religious, or personal reasons, as allowed by Section 53G-9-303 of the Utah Statutory Code. To receive a vaccination exemption form, the legally responsible individual who claims the exemption for the student must complete the online immunization education module.
