Sixth Grade Parents-Important Reminder on Immunization requirements
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Students entering the 6th grade are required to have a booster dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine if attending public school if five years or more have passed since their last dose of tetanus/diphtheria toxoid.
Please contact your health care provider or local health department to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine. Your child will need to bring proof of vaccination to the school on the first day of 6th grade.
Do not delay! Make sure your child is up-to-date on his/her immunizations prior to the start of the 6th grade school year.
