The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Vaccine Preventable Disease Control Program (VPDC) is committed to keeping students healthy, safe and in school. The resources below are intended to help day care/child care, schools and colleges and universities- public, private and religious, promote immunization and prevent outbreaks of disease. Information includes guidance on how to review, maintain and report student immunization records to ensure students have the vaccines required by law.

Many of the documents listed are from Shots for School. Go to for documents in additional languages. Along with the current schedule of vaccines required for school entry, in July 2019, new immunization dose requirements were added.
