Tdap Immunization Requirement

Pertussis is widespread. If your child 10 years and older has not yet received the ‘Tdap’ pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet a new school requirement that begins in the 2011-12 school year (California law - Assembly Bill 354). Adults are also advised to get a pertussis booster shot, if they haven’t already, to protect themselves, their families, and their students.
Your child will not be able to enter 7th grade without proof of the requirement.
Please bring your immunization card into the school office or Health Office signed and stamped by your Health Care Provider when the immunization is given.
