H.R. 308, P.N. 1928 (SCAVELLO) This would urge the Health Department to recommend that 11 to 12 year old children receive a tetanus/dipththeria booster shot, if they have not done so within the previous five years.

Very shortly, a dT shot with pertussis will be available, This immunization would be very useful in reducing the spread of Pertussis, commonly known as 'whooping cough'. Teens have been shown to be vulnerable to this disease, as the earlier boosters' efficacy wanes. Perhaps you could require the new vaccine.
