A booster dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine is required for all children attending public school who are entering the 6th grade on or after August 1, 2008.

Your child will need to bring proof of vaccination to the school on the first day of 6th grade. Acceptable proof of vaccination is a copy of the child's Certificate of Immunization.

DO NOT DELAY! Make sure your child is up-to-date on his/her immunizations prior to the start of the 6th grade school year!
