Shots for School


Shots For School 7th Grade

 The school immunization law requires all students entering 7th grade in the 2023-2024 school year in California to be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap. Students will also be required to show proof of Varicella (Chicken Pox) doses 1 and 2. Both doses are required!

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 new requirement affects ALL students (current, new, and transfers) in public and private schools.

To facilitate the documentation of this vaccination and to ensure that your student will be able to enter school in August, our schools request that proof of this immunization be submitted to their school offices no later than May 2024. 

No 7th graders will be allowed to start school until proof of immunizations have been turned in.
