    of having received one dose of Tdap vaccine (an
    adolescent whooping cough booster shot) on or
    after the 10th birthday before starting school.
    (A Tdap vaccine that has been given on or after
    the 7th birthday will also be accepted.)
  • By law, students who do not have proof of
    receiving a Tdap booster shot will not be able to
    start school in the fall until proof is provided
    to the school.
  • It is recommended that proof of Tdap booster be
    brought to the Health Office as soon as possible,
    but no later than May 1st, 2011 to prevent a
    delay in your student starting school in the fall.
