Parents, Children Reminded: 'No Shots, No School'

August 27, 1987

Parents with children entering kindergarten in September are being reminded that the youths will need up-to-date immunization records.

"All public and private schools and child care centers throughout Los Angeles County will be enforcing the 'no shots, no school' policy in September," said Dr. Stephen Waterman, chief of Acute Communicable Disease Control of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.

Because of the immunization requirements, free summer immunization clinics have been scheduled at all county health centers. Most children entering kindergarten must have had five diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis or whooping cough shots and four doses of oral polio vaccine. Measles, mumps and rubella immunizations are also required.

At the clinics, children can get any immunizations they need and have their immunization records brought up to date. Proof of immunization is required before a child can be enrolled in school. Residents should contact their physician or the county health center nearest their home for more information.
