Under the California School Immunization Law (California Health and Safety Code, Sections 120325-120375), children are required to receive certain immunizations in order to attend public schools.
The California School Immunization Law also requires schools to enforce immunization requirements, maintain immunization records of all children enrolled, and submit reports to the local health department.
As of July 1, 2019, these are the new immunization dose requirements:
State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we receive these records.
The Tdap immunization is required before the beginning of 7th grade. If your child has already received the Tdap immunization, please send a copy of the shot record to your child's school or fax it to Health Services (fax 530-846-4582).
