Senate Bill 277
Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015. Effective one year from now in July 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:
- Students in home-based private schools
- Students enrolled in an independent study program who do not receive classroom-based instruction
- 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
- Allow medical and personal beliefs exemptions from any new immunization requirement initiated by CDPH for attendance at school or child care.
Immunizations for Your ChildThe best care for your child is to get immunizations from his or her regular doctor or clinic, because they will have all of your child’s health information. But if there are costs for the vaccine that you can’t afford to pay, Sutter County Public Health is a place you can bring your child during our Immunization Clinic hours. If you have questions whether your child qualifies, please contact Sutter County Public Health at 822-7215.

CLINICA DE INMUNIZACION
New Rule Shots Before SchoolCalifornia enacted a law in 2012 that requires every incoming 7th grader to have had a Tdap immunization or have an exemption signed by the parent. Beginning in January 2014, a new law, AB 2109, will take effect that requires any parent seeking exemption(s) to school vaccine requirements to see a medical provider to discuss the benefits and risks of vaccinating their child before an exemption will be granted.
Love Them, Protect ThemCalifornia Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommends that all new parents, grandparents and those persons who will be around a new infant to be immunized against Pertussis. The vaccine is called Tdap, and is protection against Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Tetanus and Diphtheria. All pregnant adolescents and women should receive Tdap during each pregnancy (preferred during 27 through 36 weeks gestation) regardless of number of years from prior Td or Tdap vaccination.
