New Law (SB 277) Effective in 2016

 
 

Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015. Starting in 2016, SB 277 will:

  • No longer permit immunization exemptions based on personal beliefs for children in child care and public and private schools;
  • Permit personal belief exemptions submitted before January 1, 2016 to remain valid until a pupil reaches kindergarten or 7th grade;
  • Remove immunization requirements for:

o     Students in home-based private schools

o    Students enrolled in an independent study program who do not receive classroom-based instruction

o    Access to special education and related services specified in an individualized education program

Students in the above categories will still need to provide immunization records to their schools before entry, and schools will still need to report to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) the immunization status of all students at the existing checkpoints of child care, kindergarten and 7th grade.
