SB 792 (Mendoza) Went into Effect in 2016
HOAC was proud to sponsor SB 792 (Mendoza), which Governor Brown signed into law in 2015. This new law requires day care workers to be immunized against pertussis, measles, and influenza. The new law will protect children in California's day care centers and family day care homes against dangerous communicable diseases.
HOAC has developed two fact sheets to help day care centers prepare for implementation of the new law. You can also find useful information through the California Department of Public Health.
