School and Pre-Kindergarten (Child Care/Preschool) Immunization Requirements
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. This 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.
Visit ShotsForSchool.org for information on the required immunizations to enter child care/preschool and school, and for immunizations required for child care employees and volunteers under Senate Bill (SB) 792.
