To view required immunizations for students in California, please visit Shots for School from the California Department of Public Health.
Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children and teens from potentially harmful diseases. A prolonged illness from a vaccine preventable disease can take a financial toll because of lost time at work, medical bills or long term disability care. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalizations, or even be deadly- especially in infants and young children. Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, eliminated many diseases that killed or severely disabled people just a few generations before.
If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
