These state mandated immunization requirements for all incoming 6th graders must be met before your child can attend Middle School in the fall:
- 2 Hep A
- 3 Hep B
- 2 Varicella
- 5 DTaP
- 1 Tdap (Tetanus & Pertussis)
- 4 Polio
- 1 MCV4 (Meningococcal conjugate)
- 2 MMR
We suggest you make appointments now to get the needed immunizations while your child is still in 5th grade. The local health departments and area physicians are extremely busy in the summer and at the beginning of the school year.
When you submit documentation on time, you prevent interruption to the start of your child’s school year (click here for the school year calendar). Once your child receives the shots listed above, please send in documentation to the school health office. We will record the information and send it to the appropriate middle school.
*Note: Some physicians will not give the doses until the child has reached the 11th birthday, so please check when you make your appointment.
Thank you for working with us to keep your children healthy!
