STATE LAW TDaP BOOSTER NEEDED

Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

California law requires that all incoming 7th graders get a whooping cough booster shot, called Tdap, before starting school. This shot is routinely recommended for children ages 11 and older.

 

If your child has not received a Tdap booster, please make an appointment for him or her to receive it and other recommended care as soon as possible. 

 

For more information about pertussis and the new vaccine requirement, please visit http://www.shotsforschool.org/

 

If you have any questions, please contact Araceli Flanagan, School Nurse. 562-692-0271 X3220
