All incoming 7th grade students are required to turn in an updated immunization record that shows proof of recent Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4).
For 7th grade: 1 dose of Dephtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis (Tdap) is required if at least 5 years have passed since the last dose of tetanus-containing vaccine.
For 7th – 12th grade: 1 dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine is required on or after the student’s 11th birthday. Note: If a student received the vaccine at 10 years of age, this will satisfy the requirement.
