NEW RULE SHOTS BEFORE SCHOOL - effective July 1, 2011

Whooping Cough Immunization Requirement for All Students

Assembly Bill 354

Updated, June 6, 2011

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District would like to notify you of a new immunization requirement for students entering the 7th through 12th grade in the 2011-12 school year.  Students entering these grade levels are now required to receive a booster shot against pertussis (also know as Tdap).  Assembly Bill 354, now chaptered into California law, requires students to be immunized against pertussis.

Pertussis is widespread.  If your child is 7 years or older and has not received the ‘Tdap’ pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet a new school requirement.

For the 2011-12 school year only, all students entering 7th through 12th gradeswill need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school.  This requirement:

  • Begins July 1, 2011
  • Can be met by receiving one dose of Tdap vaccine on or after the 7th birthday.

Beginning July 1, 2012, and beyond, all students entering 7th gradewill need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school.

If your child has already received a Tdap booster, please bring proof to the health office.  If your child has not received a booster shot, please obtain it as soon as possible.  Proof must be submitted before the start of the school year or the student will not be allowed to attend.

Don’t wait for the beginning of the school year rush!  Please bring your immunization documents to the school health office now

Immunizations may be obtained from your health care provider or from the following locations:

Orange County Health Care Agency– 1725 W. 17th St., Santa Ana, CA.  Phone (800) 914-4887, or (800) 564-8448.

N-MUSD HOPE Clinic– Located at the BESST Center, 2045 Meyer Pl., Costa Mesa, CA.  Immunizations given on Mon – Fri. Call for appointment (949) 515-6725. Eligibility for the Vaccines for Children Program will apply.

A personal beliefs and medical exemption form specifically for Tdap is available.  If you have any additional questions, please contact your school administrator or school nurse.
