School vaccination deadline Friday in Lowcountry - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

Deadline arrives for Tdap vaccinations in Lowcountry


Lowcountry students will be sent home Friday if they don't have their booster shots.  

Officials say seventh-graders who have not provided proof of Tdap immunizations will not be allowed to attend school. 

Schools began informing parents last school year about the new state vaccination requirements. But at last count, hundreds of seventh-graders across the district still had not provided updated certificates of immunization. 

The 30-day extensions granted last month expires Sept. 20. The only exception will be for religious or medical reasons.
