Attention 6th Grade Parents:
DON’T DELAY! MAKE THE APPOINTMENT TODAY!
We do not want to exclude your child from school in September!
State vaccination requirements for students entering 7th grade for school year 2019-2020 are as follows:
All 7th grade students must have the following:
- Single dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) vaccine.*
- Single dose of Meningococcal vaccine (MCV)
*Tdap is not the same as the other Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis vaccines called DPT or DTaP. Even if your child has received DPT or DTaP in the past they will still need a single dose of Tdap. *
*We then need to have documentation of your child receiving Tdap and MCV vaccinations. *
Make your child’s appointment now and avoid the rush. Please bring the vaccination documentation to school as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about the new vaccination requirements, please contact your child’s health care provider or the school health room.
