Immunization Program

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.

Vaccine Records 

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.

CAIR-ME and Medical Exemptions

In California, parents and medical providers need to use the California Immunization Registry Medical Exemption (CAIR-ME) website to request, issue, and manage medical exemptions for children in school or in child care. To request a medical exemption for your child, follow the instructions. Please note that is must be a provider who is California-licensed and an MD or DO to issue the exemption.
