Deadline arrives for Tdap vaccinations in Lowcountry
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -
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.
