California law, Education Code Section 49452.8, now requires that your child have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by May 31 in either kindergarten or first grade, whichever is his or her first year in public school. Assessments that have happened within the 12 months before your child enters school also meet this requirement. The law specifies that the assessment must be done by a licensed California dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional.
When you register your kindergartner you will be asked for your child's immunization card, The Report of Health Checkup and Oral Health Assessment/Waiver Request. If the physical exam has not been completed prior to registration, then you must turn in the green form as soon as it is completed. Please contact the Health office at your school, if you have any questions.
Students Entering Grade 1-6
The immunizations listed above are also required for students entering grades 1-6.
The Following is for 1st Grade Only
In addition to the above immunizations, a physical exam is required by the State of California before starting first grade. Verification of this physical is documented on The Report of Health Checkup (green form).
San Diego County Public Health Centers will no longer provide vaccines to privately insured children and adults. A person is considered insured if they have private health insurance that includes coverage for vaccines, even if there is a high deductible or co-pay required.
