Tdap Immunization Required for Rising Seventh Graders
Parents are reminded that rising seventh grade students must have the Tdap vaccination or submit an objectors statement to school prior to the first day of attendance in August. Students who have not submitted a copy of the child's immunization record or a statement within thirty (3) days of the start of the 2015-16 school year will not be able to attend school.
The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination in the 2013-14 school year.
