My school is requiring that junior high students get vaccinated for Pertussis (whooping cough) before school starts. I was told that all students in California from grades 7 to 12 must be vaccinated or they won't be allowed to attend school this Fall. However, there are waivers available and it is state law in California that you be given the choice for vaccination. It's not well publicized, but you just need to contact your district office to get the paperwork.
