The Immunization Program works to reduce vaccine-preventable diseases by improving immunization coverage rates via case investigation, education, community collaboration, immunization record assessment, and an immunization registry. If you have any questions about your immunizations or your child's immunizations, our Immunization Coordinator is available to answer your questions.
California schools are required to check immunization records for all new student admissions at transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten through 12th grade and for all students advancing to 7th grade before entry. Parents must show their child's immunization record as proof of immunization.
If you are looking for your vaccine record, you can access a digital copy from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) portal. It is possible that some or all of the vaccine doses you received were not reported to CAIR and your record may not be complete. For assistance in finding your records, please call 707-464-0861 to speak with the Immunization Coordinator.
