Assembly Bill 354 Becomes Law
2011 Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Immunization Requirements for Students
September 30, 2010
 (Updated December 9, 2010)

Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California during 2010. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommends that all Californians 10 years and older receive a booster shot against pertussis (also known as "Tdap"). Moreover, Assembly Bill 354, now chaptered into California law, requires students to be immunized against pertussis:

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

Starting now, please use your school websites, newsletters, report card messages, and other communications to send the following information:

Pertussis is widespread. If your child 10 years and older has not yet received the 'Tdap' pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet a new school requirement that begins in the 2011-12 school year (California law - Assembly Bill 354). Adults are also advised to get a pertussis booster shot, if they haven't already, to protect themselves, their families, and their students. 

Updates on implementing this new law will be posted later in the 2010-2011 school year at, which currently has general information about pertussis disease and immunization.
