Tdap Vaccination Required to Register for the 2011-12 School Year

All  rising 7th grade – 12th grade students must have the Tdap vaccination in order to start school in the fall.  If your child has not had this shot, make sure they get one before registration.   If your child has had a Tdap booster shot after the age of seven, you can bring proof from your doctor to registration.  The Tdap vaccination requirement is a new State policy and students will not be allowed to register for school without proof from a doctor. Rising 6th grade students are not required to have this vaccination in order to start school in the fall.

Correction: an earlier version of this post did not state that rising 6th graders are not required to have this vaccination in order to start school in the fall.
