LAUSD OFFERS WHOOPING COUGH BOOSTER SHOT CLINICS
By Matt Thacker on July 22, 2014.
The Los Angeles Unified School District announced Monday that 10 clinics will provide free whooping cough booster shots to eligible children.
Under state law, students entering seventh grade must provide proof of a T-dap booster shot before school starts Aug. 12. The shots protect against pertussis, or whooping cough, as well as tetanus and diphtheria. Parents using a personal belief exemption must now submit a signed doctor’s note showing they were told of the risks and benefits of immunization.
School officials say 50 LAUSD students have had whooping cough this summer with more than a third of them from the San Fernando Valley.
By the middle of June, the California Department of Public Health declared whooping cough had reached epidemic levels, and the number of patients diagnosed continues to grow. The state had confirmed 5,393 cases of July 8 – more than double the total number of cases from 2013. There were 345 cases in Los Angeles as of June 23.
“As we continue to see increased pertussis activity, we are asking residents to make certain that everyone in your family has been vaccinated to help stop the spread of pertussis,” Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Jonathan E. Fielding said. “Being vaccinated protects your family and reduces the chance that pertussis will spread to our most vulnerable residents – infants who are too young to be fully vaccinated.”
The number of whooping cough cases usually peaks every three to five years, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes there has been an overall increase since the 1980s, especially among children age 10 to 19 and babies younger than 6 months.
Students who receive Medi-Cal, have no insurance or are of Native American descent qualify for the free shots. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health also offers low-cost immunization clinics.
Our local clinic is July 28-31, Aug. 1 and Aug. 4-8, at Zelzah Clinic, North Area Nursing Office, 6505 Zelzah Ave., Reseda, from 7:30 AM – 2:30 PM.
