Starting July 1st, 2019 - Students Admitted at TK/K-12th Grade Need:
Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015. As of 2016, SB 277:
No longer permits immunization exemptions based on personal beliefs for children in child care and public and private schools;
Permits personal belief exemptions submitted before January 1, 2016 to remain valid until a pupil reaches kindergarten or 7th grade;
These immunization are not required for:
Students in home-based private schools
Students enrolled in an independent study program who do not receive classroom-based instruction
Access to special education and related services specified in an individualized education program
Students in the above categories will still need to provide immunization records to their schools before entry, and schools will still need to report to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) the immunization status of all students at the existing checkpoints of child care, kindergarten and 7th grade.
Medical Exemption: A licensed physician (MD or DO) who feels a vaccine is not indicated for a student because of medical reasons should submit to the school (via the patient’s family as needed) a written statement documenting the medical exemption. The school will place a copy of the completed statement in the student’s file.
Written elements needed for a valid medical exemption are as follows:
Exemptions to immunization should not be taken because of convenience. Un-immunized students are at greater risk of contracting diseases and spreading them to their families, schools and communities. Schools will maintain an up-to-date list of students with exemptions, so that these students can be excluded from school quickly if an outbreak occurs.
