The state is offering free vaccines to protect against 3 highly contagious diseases.

Starting in August the Department of Health and Environmental Control is offering free Tdap vaccines at clinics in every county in the state.  T-dap protects against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough.  

Beginning this school year, all seventh graders must show proof of the Tdap vaccination. The agency says anyone is welcome to get the vaccine.  

In addition to the requirement on rising seventh graders, the Tdap shot is recommended for:

· Children ages 11 and up

· Individuals who spend time around babies less than 12 months old

· Pregnant women

· Anyone who has not had a tetanus or Tdap booster in the last 10 years
