An asterisk indicates that no data is available because the school did not submit its statistics.


Percentages may not add up to 100 percent because one category, conditional exemptions, is not shown. A conditional exemption refers to students who have received some vaccines but under immunization schedules must wait before their next vaccinations. They are admitted on the condition that they become up to date. You can download the complete dataset from the California Department of Public Health.


The California Department of Public Health lists percentages higher than 99 or lower than 1 as greater than 99 or less than 1, rather than a specific number.
