Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, continues to be widespread in California. To help stop its spread, state law mandates that ALL students entering 7th grade be vaccinated and provide proof of a Tdap vaccine booster at the beginning of the school year.
If your child does not have a Tdap booster or the school does not have proof of immunization. Please schedule an appointment with your regular doctor or bring in proof of immunization or your child will not be able to receive a schedule of classes for the next school year.
Please check your child’s immunization record and if your child:
Already had the Tdap vaccine; take the immunization record to the health office at your child’s school for proper documentation.
DOES NOT HAVE the Tdap vaccine; make an appointment with his/her doctor to receive the vaccine .
Students who do not provide proof of the vaccine before the start of the school year will not be given a class schedule and will not be allowed to attend school.
