Important Immunization Requirements


Do You Have A Student Entering Seventh Grade This Year?

If yes, your student may need a booster dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis).

A Tdap booster is required for all students entering seventh grade.

Parents or guardians should ask their private healthcare provider, or the health department, to review their student's immunization record to ensure that their student has received the Tdap booster.

Students who have received a Tdap booster at age seven or older will meet the school immunization requirement for Tdap and will not need another dose prior to entering seventh grade. 

Seventh grade students cannot begin school in September without documentation of the Tdap booster.

More information on the Tdap booster is available online.
