Schools Working Toward Full Compliance With Vaccine Law
All students in the Castro Valley and San Leandro school districts have complied with a new state law requiring students in grades seven through 12 to receive immunizations for pertussis, or whooping cough. More than 99% of students in the Fremont and Hayward districts have provided proof of vaccination, with 41 Fremont students not in compliance and 65 Hayward students not in compliance. Education officials said they are working to get all districts in 100% compliance with the law.
