Children must be immunized for:
- MMR - Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German
- DTaP - Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (Whooping Cough),
- Hepatitis B and
- Varicella (Chicken Pox)
State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required
immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start
school until we received these records.
Sixth-graders must have the Tdap immunization (for whooping cough). This is required before the beginning of seventh grade.
The Tdap immunization can be received through your child’s health care provider. Local pharmacies also offer the shot. If you feel your student may qualify for free immunizations through the Vaccines for Children Program, contact Butte County Public Health for an appointment.
If your child has already received the Tdap immunization, please sent a copy of the shot record to your child's school.
