CHANGES IN IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS
All Grade 7 students in 2014-2015 (next school year) will be required to provide proof of having received a dose of meningococcal vaccine (also called Menactra) and a booster dose of Tdap (also called Boostrix and Adacel.) These vaccines are in addition to the vaccines required for kindergarten. Most children receive these vaccines at age 10 or 11.
Parents of current Grade 6 students are urged to:
- -Check with their child’s health care provider to see if the child has received these vaccines.
- -Schedule an appointment for the child to receive these vaccines BEFORE August 25, 2014.
- -Provide verification of the immunizations to the school nurse.
Please call the school nurse at (410) 887-1214 with any questions.
