AB 354 Whooping Cough Information

Whooping Cough (Pertussis) Vaccination


Assembly Bill 354, now chaptered into California law, requires 7th grade students to be immunized against pertussis before the beginning of each school year.  All Dana students entering 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school in September.


This requirement:

  • Began on July 1, 2012,
  • Can be met by receiving one dose of Tdap vaccine on or after the 10th birthday,
  • Applies to all public and private schools,
  • Does not affect students enrolled in summer school.

If your child has not been vaccinated since his/her 10th birthday, PLEASE begin this process NOW!  When your child has received his/her booster shot, please submit a photocopy of the proof to Dana's school office.
