Attention, sixth-graders: Have you gotten your Tdap booster shot? Parents of current sixth-grade students are urged to get their child's Tdap vaccine before school ends this year, and take a copy of the child's shot record or other documentation to school as soon as possible.

A new law was created last year following the whooping cough outbreak of 2010. The law requires all students entering seventh grade to provide the schools with proof that they have been immunized against pertussis (whooping cough). The Tdap booster vaccine safely protects against three dangerous diseases: tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial illness spread by coughs and sneezes.
