Immunization Requirement for 7th  through 12th  Grade Students

for the 2018-19 School Year

Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, continues to threaten students in California. To help stop its spread, all incoming 7 th- through 12th grade students are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (‘Tdap’) shot in order to attend classes this year. Students will not be
allowed to attend classes without a shot record.
For important information on the new law, go to
If your child is 10 years old or older and has not yet received the Tdap booster shot, please contact your doctor or the health department (621-6100) for an appointment as soon as possible.  Be sure to bring in the updated immunization record to the school office, so a copy can be made and your child cleared of this requirement. 
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.
