The new school immunization website is now live and ready to be shared among school nurses, school personnel, parents and providers. The website, www.ShotsForSchool.org
provides news, resources and information for schools, parents, and healthcare providers about school immunization requirements for childcare, K-12 and college populations.
Beginning July 1, 2012, and beyond, all students entering 7th grade will need proof of the "Tdap" booster shot before starting school. If your child 7 years and older has not yet received the "Tdap" Pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or our Children's Health Center. Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of Pertussis and meet the new school requirements (California law- Assembly Bill 354).
