IMMUNIZATIONS
Top of Page

MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS for required immunizations (per Shots for Schools) starting January 1, 2021
 
Medical exemptions for school and child care entry can only be issued through the California Immunization Registry - Medical Exemption website (CAIR-ME) by physicians licensed in California.  Parents can create an account and log in to CAIR-ME to submit a request for a medical exemption.  Next, the child's doctor can complete the medical exemption in CAIR-ME and print a copy for the parents to give to the child's school or child care facility. 
 
The requirements for a medical exemption from a CA licensed physician (M.D. or D.O.) include:
  • The specific nature of the physical condition or medical circumstance for which the licensed physician does not recommend immunization.
  • Which vaccines are being exempted.
  • Whether the medical exemption for each immunization is permanent or temporary.
  • The expiration date for each respective immunization, if the exemption is temporary.  Temporary exemptions may be issued for no more than 12 months.
 
PERSONAL BELIEFS EXEMPTION (PBE)
 
Senate Bill 277, passed by the California legislature and signed into law by Governor Brown, eliminates the Personal Belief Exemption (PBE) for student vaccinations.  This law went into effect January 1, 2016. 
  • All elementary school students with a PBE on file with a California school district before January 1, 2016, will be allowed to attend class through their 6th grade school year.
  • However, for advancement into the 7th grade, students will need to provide documentation of immunizations started (following a catch-up schedule, with no shots due at the start of school, even if more doses are due later in the year).
  • Alternately, if students have a physical condition or medical circumstance for which the licensed physician does not recommend immunizations, they may submit a medical exemption (following guidelines above) for required immunizations.
