Sixth-grade Tdap: Shot Records Needed Before Summer Break
As you know we are hoping to get as many sixth grade students immunized with the Tdap vaccination as possible before the start of seventh grade.
Attached you will find a two-page letter (translations included) to the families of sixth graders that talks about the Tdap requirement for seventh grade. We have revised the communication from previous years to include action items for the family as well as language addressing additional recommended vaccinations for this age group.
This letter is intended as a double-sided communication to conserve resources. Please send this home with all of your sixth grade students.
As the immunization records come in it is important that this information be entered into Infinite Campus as soon as possible so that we have an accurate account of who is immunized. Health Services tracks this information weekly and will do so through the end of the school year.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Rebecca Wall, Health Services Technician.
Thank you for your assistance in making sure all our students are immunized in a timely manner.
