Enrollment Information

 Enrollment Information 

As of July 1, 2019, Virginia law requires that all 7th grade students receive a TDAP booster vaccination prior to 7th grade entry (see fact sheets attached). Sixth grade girls are required to receive the HPV vaccine prior to entering sixth grade. However, parents and guardians have the right to decide if they want their children to receive the HPV vaccine or not.  Immunizations are currently down across the country as a result of the pandemic. Even though students will be learning virtually during the fall semester; enrollment and vaccination requirements still remain in place. In an effort to support our families, the Richmond City Health District (RCHD) along with local Health Systems have provided a list of resources for parents to connect our students to area providers via their "Don't Wait, Vaccinate Campaign". Please see the attached flyers. On Thursday, August 13, 2020 and Thursday, August 20, 2020; the RCHD will offer TDAP and HPV clinics for 7th grade students. HPV is a 2-series vaccination; and further clinics will be planned for students to receive their second vaccination.  HPV is most effective for both boys and girls, when it is administered between the ages of 11-12 years of age (see HPV info flyer attached). The flyers for these upcoming clinics will be provided as soon as they are available.
