Tdap Immunization Updates

Current 6th grade students must show proof of immunization BEFORE starting 7th grade for the 2017-2018 school year.
The two immunizations are:

  • Tdap vaccine (to protect from Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis)
  • Meningococcal (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine (to protect from Meningitis)

Any current 6th-grade student who has not had the immunizations listed above before the start of the 2017-2018 school year, will not be permitted to attend school until proof of these immunizations has been received.  If your child is unable to receive this immunization due to a medical reason, your doctor must state so in writing.

Both the required Tdap and Meningitis (A, C, Y, W-135) shots can be obtained at any time from now until the first day of 7th grade for current 6th-grade students.   We encourage you to contact your Primary Care Physician or your local Health Department for an appointment. A Tdap booster vaccination will be required for all students entering 7th grade.  If you have questions or concerns, you can call the Wayne County Health Department at 330-264-9590.
