July 16, 2011 (San Diego) – Sen. Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) announced today that the Senate unanimously passed her bill to extend the deadline for students to receive their whooping cough vaccine this coming school year.  It now heads to the governor for his consideration.
 
"This bill will help get more young people vaccinated and give school districts time to put together an immunization plan at their campuses,” said Kehoe.  “Protecting public health is one of the government’s biggest jobs, and this legislation reflects our obligation to keep Californians healthy and safe.”
