On September 29, 2010, a new law was passed (AB 354) that changed California immunization requirements for students entering 7th grade in public and private schools.
· All students entering 7th grade in the coming school year must have proof of a Tdap booster shot. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday.
· Schools will turn away students who are not up to date beginning July 1.
It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child gets their vaccination and to avoid appointment delays.
Getting them up to date now will protect against pertussis, and ensure that they will not be excluded from school and to ensure class placement.
Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up to date immunizations to your child’s school, prior to the beginning of the next school year.
No students will be allowed to attend school without up to date immunizations.
For questions, please call your primary physician today or call the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Immunization Program at (209) 468-3481.
