Children in California are required to receive certain immunizations to attend child care and pre-school. We would like to provide some resources to help you encourage returning and newly enrolled children to catch up on required immunizations, and make sure that they are up to date with their recommended vaccines, including COVID vaccine. If you have any scheduled parent communications going out this summer, please consider adding a reminder for parents to add making a vaccine appointment to their Summer to-do lists.
Below you will find some immunization education materials as well as resources to help your families locate a vaccine clinic if they are unable to make an appointment with their pediatrician or medical home, or if they do not currently have a medical home.
