School Entry Requirement for Junior High School Students—Tdap Booster
A new school immunization law requires all students entering 7th grades be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap. Children should visit their regular doctor or healthcare provider to get their Tdap booster and other immunizations as soon as possible to avoid the back-to-school rush. Medi-Cal and most private insurances cover the cost of immunizations. Click here for more information.
National Infants Immunization Week/Toddler Immunization Month
April 26, 2014 through May 3, 2014 is National Infants Immunization Week and May is Toddler Immunization Month. National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. This a perfect time to check your child’s immunization record to see if they are up to date on their recommended immunizations. Your child may look healthy, but if they are not up-to-date with shots, they are at risk for dangerous diseases like measles and whooping cough.
Limited Adult immunizations are available at both sites (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis AB combination, and Tdap).
