The California Department of Public Health is closely following the rate of immunization during the pandemic and immunization requirements for admission to school in California for the 2020-2021 school year. The Law requiring students to have a Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Tdap) booster prior to entering 7th grade remains in place during Distance Learning.
Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District is holding a Tdap immunization clinic on Wednesday, August 19th from 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM at Grange Middle School, 1975 Blossom Ave., Fairfield to provide students this required immunization free of charge.
Students that need the Tdap booster and are unable to attend the above clinic should contact their doctor or health clinic as soon as possible. All students must have proof of immunization on file before advancing to 7th grade.
