*Beginning with the 2013 -14 school year, all children entering seventh grade must receive or have already received a dose of Tdap vaccine to protect them from pertussis (whooping cough). Parents do not have to wait until their child enters the seventh grade as children as young as seven years old can be vaccinated. Parents will need to provide their child’s school with a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that their child received this newly required Tdap vaccine. Parents, please don’t wait – avoid the rush by making an appointment with your child’s healthcare provider to get the required Tdap vaccine and other vaccines recommended for your child’s protection.
