Be Aware of Expanded Tdap Requirements for 2013-14

Significant increases in pertussis cases (also known as whooping cough) have led to expanded requirements for the new Tdap vaccination in Illinois. Tdap is a new formula of vaccine that must be identified specifically by name. The date administered MUST be documented by a physician in order to be compliant.

Beginning in the August of 2013, all students entering, transferring, or advancing into 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades will be required to show proof of receipt of one dose of Tdap vaccine (containing tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis). Most students may have already received the vaccine and simply need to provide the school with verifying documentation from the family health care provider.

A parent letter from the Illinois Department of Public Health is posted on the District 205 Vaccination Information webpage under Health & Safety (and linked below). More information is also available from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
