School immunization required for upcoming school year

Bookmark and Share

Beginning with the 2011-12 school year, a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) vaccine will be required for students in the 7th grade in Oklahoma schools.
 
Tdap is a booster dose of tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccines. One dose of Tdap is routinely recommended at 11 through 12 years of age. One dose is also recommended for adolescents 13 through 18 years of age who have not already received a dose.
