New Rule for School

A new state law requires all California public and private students in grades 7-12 to be immunized against pertussis or “whooping cough” before they start school this fall. Amador County Unified School District officials expect this to impact at least 2000 students within the district. Amador County Public Health and Sutter Amador Hospital advise parents to contact their primary care provider now to “avoid the rush.” This law took effect on July 1, 2011.
