Information on New California Immunization Laws

This is to inform you of the new California immunization laws (SB 277), where changes have been enacted in the California Health and Safety Code, which will become effective in 2016.

The new amendments to the California Health and Safety Code will no longer permit Personal Beliefs Exemptions (PBEs) for children in childcare and public or private schools.  However, California PBEs submitted before January 1, 2016 will remain valid until the student reaches the next immunization checkpoint, either Kindergarten or 7th grade.

If you have a child entering Kindergarten or 7th grade in the fall,  he/she will be subjected to to this new immunization law. PBE’s will no longer be accepted at these grade levels.
