  • The School and Childcare Roster Lookup (SCRL) tool is now available for all schools and child care sites! An invitation to register and get started using SCRL was sent to schools and child care sites 1/30/23. This new tool quickly returns the immunization status for each child on your roster found in the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), using pre-K or K–12 immunization requirements. You can easily see which children are up to date or behind on their immunizations. Register for SCRL at CAIR Hub!
  • The reporting deadline is extended until February 28, 2023. You can submit and edit your reports until the end of the deadline. Please see the rep​orting instructions for more information.
  • CDPH is thrilled to announce the launch of a  free online training for schools to support implementation of school immunization requirements!  
  • Audits: In school year 2021–2022, the annual financial and compliance audits of public schools will include an immunization component for schools with kindergarten or 7th grade. View the Audits page for more information.
