Information on Immunizations, also known as Vaccines
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 and private elementary and secondary schools, child care centers, family day care homes, nursery schools, day nurseries and developmental centers.
The California School Immunization Law also requires schools, child care centers, and family child care homes to enforce immunization requirements, maintain immunization records of all children enrolled, and submit reports to the local health department.
The California Code of Regulations provide specific instructions for the public, health care providers, school governing authorities, and local health departments.
Regulations for California school immunization requirements are in Title 17 Division 1, Chapter 4.
