The Tdap vaccine protects against 3 bacterial diseases: Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis – (also known as the whooping cough). Because your child is currently in 6th grade, we want to ensure that our parents/guardians are aware that California State law requires that children receive the Tdap vaccine and are up-to-date with their measles vaccines PRIOR to entry into 7th grade. This month, 6th grade students are being sent home with an informational flyer about where to obtain the Tdap Vaccine and your son or daughter will bring home a letter.
For a list of immunization clinics and eligibility requirements please refer to the letter and our website.
Once your child has been vaccinated, please be sure to bring verification of their immunization to our school so that your child’s record can be updated. Should you have any questions about the Tdap Vaccine, please call our school nurse at (323) 549-5000.
