The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Vaccine Preventable Disease Control Program (VPDCP) is committed to keeping students healthy, safe, and in school. The resources below are intended to help day care/childcare facilities, schools, and institutes of higher education (public, private, and/or faith-based), promote immunization and prevent outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases.

This toolkit is intended for schools and serves as a guide for coordinating school-located vaccine (SLV) clinics, including best practices and resources to support schools in the planning, coordination, and promotion of immunization services in school settings. While it includes information and resources for TK-12 schools, the overall content is helpful for childcare facilities, preschools, and institutes of higher education.

This toolkit is a series of documents designed to help schools and daycares/preschools handle cases of pertussis cases at their facilities.
