The attached are letters/forms which were distributed in February 2011 regarding the Pertussis Immunization Booster (whooping cough) that 7th -12th grade students will need before the first day of school on 8/15/11.  Please take this form, along with your immunization card, to your health care provider.

The Tdap vaccine is currently available at the Yuba County Health and Human Services Department (5730 Packard Ave, Suite 100, Marysville) at no cost. Although most elementary aged school children have been vaccinated, high school students and adults need the Tdap booster, if they haven’t already received it, as this disease does not have lifetime immunity from childhood immunization alone.
