At a Glance

Here at the San Mateo County Office of Education, we are committed to ensuring all 94,000 students in our county have everything they need to be healthy so they can come to school ready to learn. 

Senate Bill 277

SB 277 eliminated the personal belief exemption for immunizations and requires that all medically eligible children receive vaccines for a number of potentially serious diseases before attending public or private school. For more information about why immunizations are safe, as well as what SB 277 could mean for your child, please refer to our Immunizations page. 

School Policies

Schools play a large role in the ensuring the health of our students. For more information about the types of policies schools have put in place for things like epinephrine injectors and e-cigarettes, please refer to our School Policies page.
