SCUSD Offers Free Whooping Cough Boosters
Immunization clinic on Wednesday is part of SCUSD’s comprehensive preparations for new state law
SCUSD is staging a series of free immunization clinics to help parents comply with a new California booster shot requirement.
State law now requires that all students entering seventh through 12th grades in the fall provide proof of receiving the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccination on or after age 7. The proof must be recorded before students enter school in September, according to the law.
Parents of children currently in grades six through 11 who have not had the Tdap or the DTP (an earlier version of the vaccine) can bring their children to Luther Burbank High School (3500 Florin Road) auditorium from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11 for a free inoculation. Parents must bring their child’s immunization record to receive a booster shot.
Three more clinics are planned for uninsured students and those who meet certain criteria (to find out more, visit our website at www.scusd.edu).
Those clinics are scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the following days and locations:
Friday, May 20: Rosemont High School, 9594 Kiefer Blvd. Friday, June 3: John F. Kennedy High School, 6715 Gloria Drive Tuesday, June 7: C. K. McClatchy High School, 3066 Freeport Blvd.
