SB 277 Vaccine Law – No Change This School Year

We are not attorneys and we are not giving out legal advice. HSLDA is available to answer legal questions for their members.

SB 277 will not go into effect until July 1, 2016. That means no changes in the mandatory vaccination law for this new 2015-2016 school year, this fall. The current mandatory vaccination law and forms used this past year will continue to be in effect until July 1, 2016.

Children enrolled in a home-based private school or any other type of school will need to have the personal beliefs exemption form CDPH 8262 signed by an authorized health care provider and filed to be exempt from vaccines required for school attendance for this new 2015-2016 school year, which for most people begins August or September of this year, 2015.

We and HSLDA will be researching and providing information on how this new law (which goes into affect next year) will affect private homeschoolers.
