ALL incoming 7th graders
The following immunizations are required for all incoming 7th graders:
1. Tetanus, Diphtheria and acellular pertussis-containing vaccine (Tdap): All students entering the seventh grade will be required to have one dose of Tdap. Students in the seventh grade will be required to have a booster dose of Tdap only if it has been five years since their last dose of a tetanus-containing vaccine.
2. Varicella Vaccine (Chicken Pox): All students entering 7th grade will be required to have 2 doses of varicella vaccine. A written statement from a parent (or legal guardian or managing conservator) or physician attesting to a child’s positive history of varicella disease (chickenpox), or of varicella immunity, is acceptable in lieu of either dose of varicella vaccine.
3. Meningococcal Vaccine (Meningitis): All students entering 7th grade will be required to have one dose of meningococcal vaccine.
Please check all immunization records to see what your student may need to start school and submit documentation as soon as possible. Please do not wait until August to try to update your student’s immunizations.
Your student will NOT be allowed to attend classes if vaccines are not current by August 22, 2016.
