Amador County Public Health: Tdap Tuesday for Uninsured Teens Before School

Sutter Creek, CA – Uninsured incoming 7th grade students will have one more chance to receive the state-required Tdap booster at Amador County Public Health before school starts. Tdap protects against whooping cough (pertussis), a serious and highly contagious disease. The booster is available at Public Health vaccination clinics on the first and third Tuesdays each month. The last clinic before school begins will be held on August 7th from 2:00 to 5:30 pm at the Health and Human Services Building in Sutter Creek.

Teens who will be entering the 7th to 12th grades this fall need to meet the California state requirement of getting immunized against whooping cough with a Tdap shot before starting school. Students in this age group who received their booster last year are already in compliance with this State law. Immunizations for eligible children are $10 at Public Health clinics, but immunization is free if cost is an obstacle.

Recently the State of California changed the Public Health clinic immunization guidelines limiting the availability to those without insurance. Amador residents with insurance should contact their medical provider for an appointment. The Tdap booster may also be available at some local pharmacies.

“Immunity from childhood vaccines can gradually decrease over time, exposing a child to serious preventable diseases that could easily spread to others in the family, school, and community,” said Dr. Bob Hartmann, Amador County Public Health Officer.

Several important vaccines are recommended for preteens and teens including Tdap, the meningococcal vaccine and the HPV vaccine series. Everyone older than six months old is recommended to receive a seasonal flu vaccine.
