IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SCHOOL AGE CHILD:
California Department of Public Health – Immunization Branch

All children are required to have their vaccinations fully completed/up to date before enrolling in grades TK – 12 unless exempted as provided by law. Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal/religious beliefs will no longer be an option for vaccines required for school entry in California. Personal/religious beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade. Medical exemptions, either permanent or temporary, are acceptable with a written statement from physician (M.D. or D.O) licensed in the state of California.

For more information about SB 277, please see https://www.shotsforschool.org.

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Health website at www.shotsforschool.org or contact your local health department or county office of education.
