Back-to-school Immunizations for ALL SEVENTH GRADERS

A new school year starts Aug. 12. Make sure your child's immunizations are taken care of before school begins.

To protect the health of youth in our care, LAUSD follows certain immunization requirements. Here’s an overview of what parents need to know before the beginning of the school year:

What immunizations are required for a child to register for school?
LAUSD and the Los Angeles County Health Department require that complete health and immunization records for incoming kindergartners and new students be presented in written form and authorized or signed by a public health clinic, health care provider or private doctor before a student can begin attending classes.

What are the whooping cough immunization requirements?
All LAUSD students entering seventh grade will need proof of a T-dap booster shot before starting school on Tuesday, Aug. 12. The law requires students without proof of receiving the whooping cough (T-dap or pertussis) vaccination to be “excluded” from classes. The immunization has been mandated by the state of California because of an epidemic of this highly contagious bacterial disease among teenagers.

Parents must bring proof of current immunizations before Tuesday, August 12th, to our Attendance Office. The Attendance Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Any student without current immunizations will not be able to attend the first day of school. Their parents will be contacted and will be required to take their child home.


If a student need a current immunization, parents may take advantage of these special opportunities:

Los Angeles County Public Health Department clinics provide no cost or low cost immunizations to children 18 years of age and younger. Click here for a list of L.A. County clinics.

LAUSD is also offering whooping cough booster shots for eligible children. (Eligible children include those who receive Medi-Cal, who are of Native American descent and who have no insurance.) Click here for a schedule and list of LAUSD schools where immunizations clinics will be held.
