New statewide immunization regulations will take effect on July 1, 2019, which affect enrollment for the 2019-20 academic year.
To be compliant with the state Health and Safety Code, Sections 120325-120375, public and private elementary and secondary schools in California are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at TK/Kindergarten through 12th grade, along with all students advancing to 7th grade before entry.
Below are resources for schools and parents to assist with enrollment. If you are an academic institution or clinical organization that would like onsite training about these new laws, please go to the training request page or scroll below.
