Flu Information for Parents & Caregivers of Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs from the Department of Health.

The Family Voices Immigration Toolkit* is a collection of documents designed to inform, empower, and assist families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who support them to prepare for the possibility of an emergent immigration situation and/or to collect supporting documentation that accurately reflects the extent of hardship on the health and well-being of a child with SHCN if s/he or the caregiver is detained or removed. This toolkit differs from others in that it uniquely addresses and supports the needs of CYSHCN in terms of the documentation, including specific templates for doctor letters and a documentation organization checklist. (*This toolkit is not intended to be legal advice.)

Personal Care Services-Immunization is important for all Washington community members: “This goes for any child, regardless of immigration status. The only difference with immigration status is that once a person turns 18 they no longer qualify for Apple Health/Medicaid if they are undocumented.”
