San Francisco -- Some 2,000 San Francisco students who still lacked proof of a whooping cough vaccination one month into the school year were barred from class Thursday and told not to return until they got the shot.
A new state law requires all children in grades seven through 12 to have the vaccine by the first day of school this year, but districts struggling to get families to comply asked for and received a 30-day extension. [...]
Many children receive whooping cough, or pertussis, vaccine as infants. Then after age 7, they typically get a Tdap booster shot, which also includes immunization for tetanus and diphtheria.
[InfoLib Note: Here is where, at the end of the article, the big lie is revealed: There are exemptions for these vaccines, you just need to know how to ask for them.]For all required immunizations, state law includes an opt-out provision based on medical reasons or personal beliefs. Parents must fill out an exemption form at their children's schools.
