From a city bulleting to doctors:
We would like to remind you that a new school immunization requirement for Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular
pertussis) vaccine will go into effect for the 2007-2008 school year. This new law requires that:
• Students who are entering, repeating, or transferring into 6th grade or a comparable age-level program in any
ungraded school on or after September 1, 2007, who were born on or after January 1, 1994, and who are at least
11 years of age, must receive Tdap vaccine to attend school. Students who are not in compliance with this
requirement will be excluded from school.
• If a student has received a tetanus-containing vaccine within the preceding 2 years, the required Tdap vaccination
may be deferred until a period of 2 years has elapsed."

OK, as I'm reading the link this has gotten my attention:
We would also like to remind you that:
• Vaccine vials for DTaP, DT, Td, and Tdap are visually similar and are easily confused. DTaP is licensed for use
only in children <7 years of age. Tdap is licensed only for use in those 10 or 11 years of age and older, depending
upon the specific product. Many medication administration errors have been reported. A poster can be
downloaded from http://dhs.ca.gov/ps/dcdc/izgroup/pdf/IMM-508.pdf which may aid in preventing such errors.

What do you mean? That the moms who are anti will be forced to vaccinate their children when they are older???
That is the way it is here in Georgia. If you want your child to go to public school. There is a medical waiver you can get (if your child is proven to be allergic to the vaccine additives), and there is a religious waiver, if you can prove that your recognized religion is adamantly against medical interventions such as vaccines. But there is no "philosophical" waiver in Georgia.
