ATTENTION CURRENT 6th GRADE STUDENTS BECOMING 7th GRADE STUDENTS IN 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR.
This is a reminder that all 7th grade students must have proof of T-dap immunization submitted before your student begins school. Please bring T-dap proof ASAP to avoid the rush in August.
AB354 Requires Tdap Shot for 7th Graders
For the 2021-2022 school year all students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called "Tdap") for school in the fall. Every doctor's office has a simple form ready to complete and can be faxed directly to the LCMS office at 925-837-3512. This requirement applies to all public and private schools. The new requirement was signed into law in 2010.
The Tdap requirement affects all incoming 7th grade students in California, so it's important to avoid the back-to-school rush and to get children vaccinated now. Tell other parents with children in the 6th grade about the requirement and encourage them to schedule the shot early, before summer. If your child has already received this vaccination, please send in the documentation NOW and do not wait until summer or the start of the school year. We are requesting all documentation to be turned in BEFORE August 4, 2021 so that there is ample time to input all of the information. You may also scan the document and send it to either Traci Varanini or to Anju Lashkari, School Nurse at LCMS at their email addresses given below.
The California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Education have been working collaboratively on this important measure. Information on the new Tdap requirement, including information on where to get free or low cost vaccines, forms and FAQs
Please email Traci Varanini@ firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions at 925-855-6810 or Anju Lashkari, RN, C-PNP at email@example.com.
Thank you for your attention in this very important matter.
