Summer 2019 School Health News
Parents of incoming 7th graders--Remember that the state requires your child to have their TDAP (tetanus-diphtheria-and pertussis) booster shot to enter 7th grade!
- You MUST bring your child's updated immunization form to registration on August 6th
- It MUST be on the official State of TN Immunization Certificate
- You will not be able to register or get your child's class schedule until we have this
If your child has had this booster shot, call the doctor's office and request a copy of the record on the State of TN Immunization Certificate. When you receive the copy, look over it to make sure the TDAP booster is dated. It is the last vaccine listed in section 2a. Doctor's offices are busy during the back-to-school rush. If your child needs shots or you need the office to print the copy of your child's shot record, it can take up to a week, so don't wait to call!
If your child needs this shot, or you need your record transferred to the TN Immunization Certificate, there are many places to have this done.
If you have any questions, please call the school at 853-3320 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
