     New Immunization Requirements for 2016

    Beginning January 1, 2016, SB 277 takes effect. Families with religious or other personal objections to required vaccinations will no longer be given exemptions when entering California schools or daycare. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations.

    Personal 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.

    For more information about SB 277, please see the Frequently Asked Questions available at: http://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/sb277faq/

    If you have questions about the new immunization requirement, please contact your school nurse or our Health Services Office at 909-580-5002.

    Thank you for helping us to keep our children and community healthy.

    Pertussis, also known as whooping cough has been widespread in California during 2010. The California Department of Public Health recommends that all Californians 10 years and older receive a booster shot against pertussis. The booster is called Tdap. Do not delay. Look at your child's yellow immunization record and check to see if your child has received a Tdap vaccine after their 10th birthday. If you are not sure whether your child has received this immunization please call your provider and ask.
