Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and rub your hands together until dry.
Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze and always throw the used tissue in the trash. Remember to wash your hands after you cough or sneeze. You can also cover your cough and sneezes with your sleeves if you do not have a tissue available.
Stay home when you are ill to avoid spreading the virus to other people.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Influenza vaccination is recommended for everyone six months of age or older.

Tdap Booster Shot Information
Each year, all VUSD students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap immunization given after the age of 7 before starting school in the fall. The requirement applies to all public and private schools.
Students who do not show proof of receiving this immunization will not be able to start 7th grade.
The Tdap requirement affects all incoming 7th grade students in California. If your child has not yet received the booster shot, avoid the back-to-school rush and get the vaccination now. We encourage all children in the 6th grade to get the shot prior to the summer break to avoid a delay in receiving a class schedule. Proof of this immunization needs to be taken to your child’s current school.
