New TDAP Immunization Requirements for 7th Graders
In accordance with the Virginia Department of Health, a booster dose of the T-dap vaccine is required for all children entering the 7th grade. Proof of vaccination, documented by your child’s doctor, must be brought, mailed, or faxed to the school prior to the first day of school. The law charges the school nurse and school administrators with enforcing the exclusion of those students who are not properly immunized. Your child will be excluded from school if we do not receive proof of immunization. If you have, please contact the school immediately.
