Free Tdap shots available Aug. 19

Free Tdap shots will be available to San Diego Unified School District students needing them from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Monday, Aug. 19, at Madison High School, Room 103, 4833 Doliva Drive (92117). Room 103 is located across from the main parking lot.

Click to go to Centers for Disease Control Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to receive the free Tdap booster at the clinic.

California law requires that all students going into seventh grade be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called Tdap. Schools must receive proof of the Tdap booster before the student can attend class in the fall unless they have a documented exemption. In addition, any student transferring into grades 8-12 will also need to show proof of Tdap booster given after the age of 7 years.

Parents, if your child received the Tdap booster over the summer, email the information to Adrienne Lenhoff at
