Tdap Requirement for Rising 7th Graders

South Carolina law states that ALL students are required to have the Tdap vaccine BEFORE they enter 7th grade. This means that your 6th grader should get the vaccination during his/her annual doctor visit this year. The Tdap vaccine can be obtained at your primary health care provider, the Health Department, or various walk-in clinics.

Please make sure your student has the Tdap vaccine this year and have the vaccine certificate sent to school as soon as it is completed. If your child already had the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the DHEC South Carolina immunization form to the school to ensure that we have it on record. Your child will not be able to attend the 7th grade, or pick up a schedule the week before, until we have this form on record at school. Please note that vaccine records after June 30, 2022,  can only be accepted if it is on the official DHEC SC immunization form. Thank you for your help. Please feel free to call the GMA health room with any questions.
