SB - 277 Public Health: Vaccinations

Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015 which changes immunization requirements for children entering child care or school. Effective January 1, 2016:

Parents or guardians of students in any school or child-care facility, whether public or private, will no longer be allowed to submit a personal beliefs exemption to a currently-required vaccine.

Students will no longer be required to have immunizations for entry if they attend:

  • A home-based private school or
  • An independent study program with no classroom-based instruction.
