AB 1797 Immunization registry, introduced by Asm Akilah Weber would add race/ethnicity to the information recorded in the CA Immunization Registry, would require all vaccines to be entered into the CA Immunization Registry (CAIR).  Schools and other entities would have access to all vaccine records, rather than just those of their students/patients or the particular vaccines required for school, during a public health emergency.  (https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=202120220AB1797)
