Students entering 7th grade need a Pertussis Booster Shot before they can start school in August. Many students have received this booster during their regular physicals and your child may have already received the necessary dose. Please check your child’s immunization record for a Tdap, Dtap, or DTP vaccination given on or after the child’s 7th birthday.
If your child’s record has this booster shot please bring a copy of the record to the school health office.
If your child has not received this required pertussis booster, please contact your child’s health care provider to schedule an appointment as soon as possible, as summer appointments fill quickly.
