New Tdap Immunization Requirements for 7th Graders!

Greetings LMBMS Parents and Guardians of Rising 7th Graders,

 During the 2019 General Assembly, the Code of Virginia was amended, changing the requirement for the Tdap vaccination from 6th grade entry to 7th grade entry. As of July 1, 2019, all rising 7th graders will be required to have 1 dose of the Tdap vaccine. If students have already received the Tdap vaccinefor enrollment to 6th grade during the 2018-2019 school year (most current 6th graders did ) and documentation of the vaccine has been provided to the school, they have already met the requirement for this vaccine.

Students without the required immunizations are not allowed to attend school in Virginia until enrollment requirements are met. For more information about Tdap immunization requirements, please click here.
