TDaP for ALL 6/7th Graders

Beginning July 1st, 2012 all students entering or advancing to the 7th grade will need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting the school year.
If your 7th grade student does not have proof of a Tdap immunization on file at school beginning the next school year, they will not be allowed to attend school.

It is required that you bring proof of your child’s Tdap immunization to the school now to avoid exclusion.

The Tdap immunization may be given at your private physician’s office or at one of the low cost or no cost vaccine clinics found below.

Thank you for your efforts in helping control the spread of pertussis while keeping children healthy.

If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse
