State rules for required and recommended immunizations have been updated by the Wyoming Department of Health to help protect Wyoming kids from a number of diseases.

That's Wyoming Department of Health Director Dr. Brent Sherard, who says that the Tdap booster shot is aimed a protecting children from whooping cough.

Under Wyoming’s immunization rules, parents need to provide proof of required immunizations within the first 30 days after school begins.  Students who have not turned in an immunization record or are not up-to-date on their immunizations will not be allowed to attend school.  Students in the process of completing an immunization series may continue going to attend school.
