California law requires that all students going into 7th grade be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap. Schools must receive proof of the Tdap booster before the student can attend class in the fall unless they have a documented exemption. In addition, any student transferring into grades 8-12 will also need to show proof of Tdap booster given after the age of 7 years.

Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to receive the free Tdap booster at the clinic.

Parents, if your child received the Tdap booster over the summer, email the information to Adrienne Lenhoff at
