LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Several LAUSD students heading back to school Tuesday will be required to show proof that they received a whooping cough vaccination.

A new state law mandates that all seventh through 12th grade students receive the DTaP immunization, which protects against Pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

Extra nurses will be on hand Tuesday to check vaccine cards at five LAUSD schools that are on a year-round schedule.

There are some vaccines available for students, but the school district says supplies are limited.

Parents are being asked to vaccinate their children as soon as possible to avoid a potential rush at the end of summer.

Students with pre-existing medical conditions may be exempt from getting the shot.

    Private schools are the way to go as anchor babies cannot afford anything but public education. I would not want my kids in the same classroom with their kind as they are nothing but bad examples.

    Sent mine to private school which was a considerable sacrifice for me as a single parent, but well worth the peace of mind.

    I as well made the sacrifice by working part time on weekends to make sure my children are not intergrated with the illegals in school. Now I don’t have to worry about school shootings or lockdowns every other day like at public schools.

    Marin county has had some large petussis outbreaks. Wow! They must be full or anchor-baby millionaires!

    You guys are ridiculus.

    Next time you are in Thousand Oaks, hop on over to any white hippy-skippy preschool and talk to those moms. Many will tell you they don’t believe in vacs, because “hebals” are just fine to treat Measles Mumps Chicken Pox.

    THAT is the problem.

    Children here illagally get free vacs and are often better protected and lower risk than granola whites.

    So, we must make Nature valley protect their children!
