Is your child ready for school?

There is a new California vaccine law that requires all children who attend private or public schools to be fully vaccinated regardless of their parents' personal or religious beliefs.

The new law took effect on July 1, 2016 and schools are required to verify students' immunization records before the start of kindergarten and seventh grade. This affects all kindergartners and transitional kindergartners who are participating in TTUSD’s Kinder Camp this summer.

The new vaccine law makes no changes to the list of vaccines required to attend public or private school. Those 10 vaccines include diphtheria, hepatitis B, hemophilus influenzae type b (commonly referred to as Hib), measles, mumps, pertussis, poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus, and varicella.
