Now that schools are out for summer, it’s time to make an appointment with your pediatrician to make sure your child is up to date on vaccinations. The pediatricians at PIH Health and the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices endorse several recommended vaccinations beyond the school required vaccinations which are approved to keep your child healthy from preventable diseases. 

The state of California has specific vaccination requirements for school admission.

California Requirements
