All 7th and 8th graders at Talbert must have their Tdap vaccine prior to Starting school on September 5th per state law. Make sure your child has their vaccine proof into the office before the first day of school so that they can start school on time. Students that lack proof of this vaccine will not start school until proof is provided.
