“A personal beliefs exemption is no longer an option for entry into child care; however a valid personal beliefs exemption filed with a child-care facility before January 1, 2016 is valid until entry into the next grade span (transitional kindergarten through 6th grade) and may be transferred between child-care facilities in California. For complete details, visit ShotsforSchool.org.” (CDPH)
