Sharp increase in number of Pertussis cases reported in California in 2013
Pertussis, or whooping cough, is a serious disease which can be guarded against by getting the TDAP vaccination. Nearly twice as many pertussis cases were reported in California in 2013 as compared to 2012. Protect your child by getting the TDAP vaccine! This is a state requirement to enter 7th grade. Don't wait, the lines get long and the appointments get snatched up close to the start of the new school year.

Infants are too young to get the vaccination against pertussis. Most of the pertussis cases are infants less than 4 months old. The best way to protect these fragile little babies to vaccinate our 11 and 12 year old children against pertussis.

If you have a student who will enter the 7th grade next fall, please provide proof of the TDAP vaccine to our health office. If your student has not yet had the TDAP vaccine, please schedule a vaccination as soon as possible and bring proof of vaccination to our health office.
