6th Graders

Middle School Immunization

In 2006, the Virginia General Assembly passed a law which requires all 6th grade students to have a tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) booster shot prior to entry into school. This requirement does not apply to children who have documentation of having received a dose of a tetanus containing vaccine within the last five years.

Please review your child’s shot record. Please make arrangements to have your child adequately immunized before they start school. Your child can not attend classes in the 6th grade until documentation of this immunization is taken to your child’s school nurse.
