TDAP Vaccine Requirement for 7th Grade Students
In July 2011, AB 354, a new law went into effect requiring all students entering 7th grade to have proof of a Tdap (pertussis/whooping cough) shot to start school. Avoid the rush and make sure your child can start school on time. Make an appointment for your incoming 7th grader to get a Tdap shot now. Your child will need proof of immunization in order to start school. Take your child’s record to his/her current school .
