PERTUSSIS Information:

Attention Parents and Guardians:

Thank you to parents who have already provided their child’s updated immunization records.

State law requires that all incoming 7th-12th graders get a whooping cough booster shot, called Tdap, before entering school. Students who have NOT received this booster shot prior to the beginning of the school year will NOT be allowed to start school.

We encourage you to contact your child’s doctor now to schedule an immunization appointment. Some children may qualify for free immunizations through the Vaccines for Children Program.

Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is widespread throughout California. This vaccine can help keep your child and family protected.

Thank you.

Atención Padres y Tutores:

Gracias a los padres que ya presentaron sus registros actualizados de vacunas para
 sus hijos.

Una ley estatal requiere que todos los estudiantes que ingresan a los grados del 7˚ al 12avo reciban la vacuna de refuerzo contra la tos ferina llamada Tdap antes de comenzar la escuela. Los estudiantes que no reciban esta vacuna antes del inicio del año escolar no podrán comenzar la escuela.  

Les recomendamos que llamen al doctor de su hijo o hija ahora y hagan una cita para recibir la vacuna. Es posible que algunos niños califiquen para vacunas gratis a través del Programa de Vacunas para Niños.

La tos ferina, también conocida como pertussis, se ha extendido en California. Esta vacuna ayuda mantener a sus hijos y familia protegidos.

Gracias.
