Information for Teachers & Staff
The Emergency First Aid Guidelines for California Schools manual is meant to provide recommended procedures for school staff in responding to medical emergencies when the school nurse is not available and until emergency medical services responders arrive on scene. These guidelines provide recommended actions and do not supersede or invalidate any laws or rules established by a school system, a school board, or the State.
Immunizations for School Entry
To protect children against serious infections, the California school immunization law requires them to receive immunizations before entry to school. In addition, the law requires schools to enforce immunization requirements, maintain immunization records of all children enrolled, and submit reports to public health agencies.
Please be aware that there have been recent changes to immunization medical exemptions requirements. Detailed information can be found here: https://www.shotsforschool.org/laws/exemptions/
