Re: New immunization requirements for 2016

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations. Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) or 7th grade.


For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact your local health department.

AFFORDABLE INTERNET

Did you know Comcast provides affordable Internet to qualifying families? If you/your family qualifies, Comcast will install, provide in-home WIFI and a no-term contract for $9.95 per month. To see if you are eligible, call 1-855-846-8376 or go online to visit www.apply.internetessentials.com.
