Immunizations for School

Registration is in process and parents may have questions about what immunizations are needed for school.  You can find information concerning immunizations at this site http://www.shotsforschool.org/k-12/ 

 

While most of us realize that Kindergarten students need immunizations, you may not realize that 7th graders also need immunizations.

 

If your child is entering 7th grade next year the following immunizations are required:

·       Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) —1 dose
(Whooping cough booster usually given at ages 11 and up)
 

·       Measles-containing vaccine (MMR) — 2 doses
(Usually given at 12 months of age and 4-6 years of age)
