Implementing AB 1797

Michael S. Powell, MSc, Chief, Registry and Assessment Section, Immunization Branch, Division of Communicable Disease, Center for Infectious Diseases, California Department of Public Health

  • The California Immunization Registry (CAIR) has rolled out a new module, the School and Childcare Roster Lookup (SCRL), to support schools who need to assess students.
  • New legislation that impacts school nurses using the registry was signed into law in September 2022.

AB 1797 requires health care providers and other agencies, including schools, childcare facilities, family childcare homes, and county human services agencies to disclose the specified immunization information, and would add the patient’s or client’s race and ethnicity to the list of information that shall or may be disclosed. AB 1797 goes into effect Jan 1, 2023, and would, until January 1, 2026, authorize schools, childcare facilities, family childcare homes, and county human services agencies to use the specified immunization information, for the COVID-19 public health emergency, to perform immunization status assessments of pupils, adults, and clients to ensure health and safety.

 Policy Statement

AAP Policy Statement on Off-Label Medication Use
The American Academy of Pediatrics has a position statement on the use of off-label medication use with children. The purpose of off-label use is to benefit the individual patient. Practitioners use their professional judgment to determine these uses. As such, the term “off-label” does not imply an improper, illegal, contraindicated, or investigational use. Therapeutic decision-making must always rely on the best available evidence and the importance of the benefit for the individual patient.
