A new school immunization law (AB 354) requires all students entering 7th through 12th grades in the 2011-2012 school year in California to be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap, on or after their 7th birthdays. For the 2011-2012 school years, ALL students entering into 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades will need proof of a Tdap shot before starting school. The Acalanes Union High School District will be requiring proof of Tdap for all students during the residency verification process in August, 2011. Please see the Memo to Parents and the FAQ
