Protecting our community from serious, vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and whooping cough requires a community-wide effort. Vaccinated community members are protected from diseases and they also protect others by not spreading disease. This is especially important for community members who may not be able to be vaccinated, including babies, pregnant women, and those with certain health conditions or those who don't develop protection after vaccination. Immunizations help keep our community healthy and safe.  Here are some steps you can take to help protect yourself and our community: 


Community Immunity: What can YOU do?


PARENTS can... communication

Share with other parents, school administrators, and school groups such as the PTA and student clubs immunization information from reputable sources such as: 

American Academy of Pediatrics 

Centers for Disease Control 

Every Child by Two 

Immunization Action Coalition 

Vaccine Information You Need 

National Network for Immunization Information 

U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services 

Parents' Guide to Childhood Immunizations, 2010 

Know how many students at your child's school are not fully immunized with our searchable map of Child care/Preschool, Kindergarten, and 7th Grade School.

Discuss immunizations with parents of your child's friends.

Talk to your child's pediatrician about your child's immunization status and the practice's policies on immunizations for patients and staff. 


SCHOOLS can... CA_YellowImmunizationRecord

Review the immunization records for all of your students. 

Review the immunization assessment process, including procedures for personal belief exemptions, conditional admissions, transfers, and permanent medical exemptions, which can be found at ShotsForSchool. 

Review records of students admitted conditionally every 30 days until they have received all immunizations required and should NOT let them be admitted until all doses currently due are received. 

Share immunization data with students’ families, teachers, and school staff.  A map of Child care/Preschool, Kindergarten, and 7th Grade School is available showing the level of immunization rate for each school. 

Recommend staff and teachers be up-to-date with all recommended immunizations, including annual influenza vaccine. 

Prepare for vaccine preventable disease outbreaks at your school that could affect both students and staff. 


HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS can... 2014_immunization-schedule

Recommend the immunization schedule for all of your patients. 

Give an immunization schedule to all of your patients. 

Review the immunization level at your patient's school and share information with parents. 

Ensure your staff is up-to-date with all recommended vaccines, including annual influenza vaccine. 

Mask all patients with fever and rash upon entry.
