Pertussis information

This is a note from our School Nurse:

We have had a positive case of pertussis at BV School. I am notifying parents via Skyward & school website. I will also send letters home to those students who choose not to immunize their children. People most at risk are infants under 1yo, older individuals because the vaccination wanes, immune compromised individuals.

I will have available the tetanus / pertussis booster shot for any staff who needs one (free). It is recommended that you update your tetanus every 5-7 years.
Please read the attachment for more information.
