7th Grade Requirement!!

All students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called "Tdap") for school in the fall.

This new school immunization law affects all students in public and private schools.

Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.

The Shots For School website provides news and information for schools, parents, and healthcare providers about school immunization requirements in California.

List of Vaccine Patient Resources Now Available!!

During the Central Valley Immunization Coalition quarterly meeting held on November 14, 2012 members were presented with important information about programs and/or services available to the public by various pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines.

If you were not able to attend, the representatives from the pharmaceutical companies shared the links of resources for their company’s vaccine specific program. Click here to see that list.
