Previously, Pertussis (the “P” in the immunization) had not been required after the age of 7. Due to an increase in outbreaks of Pertussis (also known as Whooping Cough) the Department of Health has decided that a booster is needed. You may take this letter with you to your doctor to use as documentation of this vaccination, or you may submit an immunization report with the dates of this Tdap vaccination. Please return this documentation as soon as possible to your child’s school nurse. If this is not provided during the 6th grade school year, you will need to send this information to the Junior High that your child will attend, prior to the beginning of next school year. The middle school nurses will forward on all immunization documentation received to the junior high nurses at the end of this year.
