Tdap Immunization for Seventh Graders

Rising seventh graders must have the Tdap vaccination or they must submit an objector’s statement prior to the first day of school, Tuesday, August 19, 2014, for students to attend school. Parents must provide their child’s school with documentation of the Tdap immunization, a religious exemption, or a medical exemption. Parents are encouraged to submit document as soon as possible. If documentation is not provided before the first day of school, the student will not be allowed to start school. The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination beginning with the 2013-14 school year.
