Student Immunization Requirements

The California School Immunization Law requires that children be up to date on their immunizations (shots) to attend school. Diseases like measles and whooping cough (pertussis) spread quickly, so children need to be protected before they enter. California schools are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten through 12th grade and all students advancing to 7th grade before entry.
