No Shot, No Schedule, No School

No Shot, No Schedule, No School

The Mt. Diablo Unified School District would like to notify you of a new immunization requirement for students entering the 7th through 12th grade. Students entering these grade levels are now required to receive a booster shot against pertussis (also known as Tdap). Assembly Bill 354, now chaptered into California law, requires students to be immunized against pertussis.

Pertussis is widespread. If your child is 7 years old or older and has not received the 'Tdap' pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting a booster show now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet a new school requirement.

Beginning July 1, 2012, and beyond, all students entering 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school.


If your child has already received a Tdap booster, please bring proof to your child's school. If your child has not received a booster shot, please obtain it as soon as possible. Proof must be submitted before the start of the school year or the student will not be allowed to attend.
