Existing law regulates immunization requirements for children in educational and child care institutions. Existing law prohibits a governing authority, as defined, from unconditionally admitting any person as a pupil of any private or public elementary or secondary school, child care center, day nursery, nursery school, family daycare home, or development center, unless, prior to the person's first admission to that institution, they have been fully immunized or have a medical exemption from immunization. Existing law requires the State Department of Public Health, by January 1, 2021, to develop and make available for use by licensed physicians and surgeons an electronic, standardized, statewide medical exemption certification form. This bill would require the department to develop and make available to licensed physicians and surgeons written materials identifying specified federal resources on vaccine warnings, injuries, and deaths. The bill would require a physician and surgeon to provide those materials to a child's parent or guardian before or at an appointment at which a vaccine is to be administered.
