CPAD Community Information

Dear Friends:

August 2011

The month of August is National Immunization Month in the United States, and with school starting soon, it’s important that we are aware of all the required immunizations our children need. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, proper immunizations help keep all of us, especially children, safe from serious diseases and illnesses. For information about getting your child’s shots on schedule, please visit the Health and Human Services website ( For information about vaccines and immunizations for all ages, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website (

UPDATE: While students in grades 7-12 still need to get the whooping cough vaccination as soon as possible, Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 614, giving educational agencies 30 extra days after classes start to begin verifying the whooping cough vaccinations.

You can get more information about pertussis and Tdap vaccines from your physician, or visit the Orange County Health Care Agency’s web site at

Lou Correa, 
State Senator, 34th District

Disability Rights California, California’s protection and advocacy system, is a nonprofit agency that advocates for the rights of Californians with disabilities. Disability Rights California has begun its annual process to review proposed priorities and objectives to guide its work for the next fiscal year. It is important to receive input from Californians with disabilities and from our collaborative partners and other disability advocates.

Disability Rights California would like you to provide feedback to our proposed priorities and objectives in an online survey. We ask that you take a few minutes to visit our website at and complete our survey by June 2, 2011. Please consider how Disability Rights California could best serve the people your organization works with.
