California Law - Immunizations Notice
The California Department of Public Health, Immunization Branch would appreciate your help in informing your members/constituents about changes in California school law relating to Assembly Bill 2109 through website postings, newsletter blurbs, or other means.
Dear California Health Care Provider:
Beginning January 1, 2014, parents or guardians who, because of personal beliefs, do not want their children to receive one or more immunizations required for entering school or child care must provide documentation specified by a new state law, also known as Assembly Bill 2109.
Additional information about this new law designed for parents, health care practitioners and schools is now available at www.shotsforschool.org, including:
- A standardized exemption form that meets the requirements of Assembly Bill 2109.
- Frequently asked questions about the new law.
The California Department of Public Health will continue to update the ShotsForSchool.org website into 2014. For more information, questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
