Public Health reminds parents to ensure their children’s vaccinations are up-to-date

NAPA – Napa County Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Relucio reminds parents to ensure their children’s vaccinations required for school are up to date.

“As summer comes to an end, we want to remind parents to get their children any necessary vaccines, so they don’t miss out on the first days of school,” said Dr. Relucio. “Talk to your healthcare provider to verify their vaccines are up to date and ensure you have proper documentation.”

Vaccinations include those that protect against Chicken Pox; Mumps, Measles, and Rubella; Polio; Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (also known as Whooping Cough).

Parents of children without health insurance, with MediCal, or are Native American or Alaskan Native can call the Napa County Public Health Immunization Clinic at 707-253-4270 to make an appointment for vaccinations.

California law requires students to be vaccinated to attend school. Students with a medical exemption written by their doctor may attend school without vaccinations. Students with personal or religious exemptions are no longer accepted.

Students who are not vaccinated, and who do not have a medical exemption, will not be allowed to attend school. Parents must make alternate school plans if their child does not have a medical exemption against vaccination, and they do not want their child to be vaccinated.
