PDH Releases Letter Explaining Tdap Immunization Guidelines (August 17, 2019)

On August 14, 2019, Jill Clodgo, PDH Chief of the Division of School Health, disseminated via PennLink, as a courtesy for the Division of Immunizations, a copy of a letter from PDH explaining the updated Tdap immunization guidelines published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in April 2018. To view the letter, click here or visit the PAPSA website at www.papsa-web.org, click on the “Resources” drop-down and go to “Downloads”.

In her email, Clodgo informs schools not to direct questions to the Division of School Health. Instead, all questions must be directed to the school’s immunizations nurse consultant, the school’s local district office, or the Division of Immunizations.
