Pertussis is widespread. If your child 10 years and older has not received the ‘Tdap’ Pertussis booster vaccine, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting immunized now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet school enrollment requirements (California law - Assembly Bill 354).
