Anthem Blue Cross Kicks Off Statewide Series Of Free Whooping Cough Vaccine Clinics In Watts On Saturday
Date:9/2/2011

n (ages 4-6) and a tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) booster by age 12.

State law was changed recently, and students entering 7th through 12th grades are now required to show proof that they have received a Tdap booster. Failure to show proof after a 30 day grace period will preclude the student from attending school. The end of the grace period for most schools falls in the last two weeks of September.

For a child to receive the vaccine, a parent or guardian must be present to complete consent forms.

Anthem Blue Cross sponsored clinics will be located in communities that traditionally lack easy access to health care.  Anthem Blue Cross is working to add additional clinics through the end of September to provide more vaccinations. Those locations will be announced in the near future.

In 2010, Anthem Blue Cross, in conjunction with the WellPoint Foundation and its associates, contributed more than $3.5 million in California causes via donations, grants and other activities to improve the health and lives of Californians. Notable donations include $375,000 to the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness to fight childhood obesity and $225,000 to the March of Dimes to enhance prenatal care.
