Whooping Cough Vaccine Required for Rising 7th Graders

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control is working to prevent the spread of pertussis, an illness that can be fatal to infants, by requiring older children to get vaccinated. 


Rising seventh graders must be immunized for pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, with the Tdap vaccine.  The shot’s name is short for tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussisMany children receive the Tdap vaccines during infancyThe vaccines are designed to jointly boost immunity. 


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommend that 11-year-olds receive the Tdap vaccineStudents must present a certificate of immunization to schools obtained from county health departments or from their doctor’s office. 


Whooping cough is especially contagious, and symptoms include severe coughing that sounds like a high-pitched breathless gaspTeens and adults who catch pertussis can rupture blood vessels and get cracked lipsInfants can die. 


Dillon School District Four school officials and health professionals urge parents to get their children vaccinated as soon as possibleVaccination appointments should be made with the local health department or with a family physicianWe are reminding you now so that you have time to plan for your child to be vaccinated before he/she begins the 7th grade in August 2023. 


Once a student has had their vaccination, an updated South Carolina Immunization Record should be taken to the child’s school District nurses will maintain records denoting which students have had the vaccine and which students need the required vaccine. 


Students have until the beginning of next school year to receive this immunization. If they have not received TDap by the start of 7th grade, they will be excluded from school until the immunization is received and the updated immunization record is on file. This is a South Carolina state requirement. The only exception is for those with a religious exemption.  Religious exemptions can only be issued by the local health department.  If parents have questions about the vaccine, they should call and ask to speak to the nurse at their child’s school.
