Immunization (Shot) Requirements
California Health Laws require that all students under age 18 years, pre-kindergarten through grade 12, be immunized against certain diseases unless they are exempt for medical reasons. At the time of registration, the school is required to have proof that your child has received all currently due immunizations.
Your child will be excluded from attending school if these requirements are not met.
Students Admitted at TK/K-12 Need:
As of July 1, 2019, California Health Laws require that students entering the 7th grade must have two doses of Varicella and a Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) booster, given after age 7, prior to entering the 7th grade. This school immunization law affects all students in public and private schools. Parents must show their child's Immunization Record as proof of immunization. Students of all grade levels (TK-12) transferring to a new school need to meet all age-appropriate immunization requirements.
These immunization requirements also apply to students entering transitional kindergarten.
California schools are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at TK/Kindergarten through 12th grade and all students advancing to 7th grade before entry. Parents must show their child's Immunization Record as proof of immunization.
