HOW TO COMPLETE THE 7th GRADE IMMUNIZATION ASSESSMENT
STEP 1: Download/Access the 7th Grade Immunization Requirements:
The Guide to Immunizations Required for School Entry, Grades K-12, and a blank blue California School Immunization
Record (CSIR PM-286) or Blue Card are in this packet or can be downloaded at: www.shotsforschool.org/reporting. If you
need more Blue Cards or Tdap (Pertussis Booster) Stickers to affix to the Blue Card, contact your local health department.
Some facilities have electronic systems and may not need the worksheet.
Note:
 Schools are to report the admission status of ALL 7th grade students as of the date that the report is completed.
 For ungraded classes, report on entering students age 12 years.
 Submit one report for each school campus per year.
STEP 2: Determine Each Student’s Pertussis (Tdap) Booster Status:
Determine the pertussis (Tdap) booster immunization status of each student in 7th grade by reviewing the
California School Immunization Record, or Blue Card, (CSIR PM-286) included in the child’s cumulative file, or by reviewing
the electronic immunization record. A dose of any pertussis-containing vaccine (e.g. Tdap, DTaP, DTP) received on or after
the 7th birthday satisfies the 7th grade pertussis booster requirement. Pertussis (Tdap) immunization is recorded on a
sticker (CDPH form PM 286 S) affixed to the blue California School Immunization Record.
STEP 3: Login to the 7th Grade Reporting Site:
a. Go to www.shotsforschool.org.
b. Click on the Child Care/School Reporting tab on the left side of the main page.
c. Click on the 7th Grade link to open the 7th Grade Reporting page.

statement should be submitted. Schools should maintain an up-to-date list of pupils with exemptions, so they
can be excluded quickly if an outbreak occurs. For more information, visit shotsforschool.org
