Tdap Vaccination for 6th Graders

State law requires that all students entering seventh grade receive a booster dose of pertussis-containing vaccine.  This means that all rising seventh graders will need a dose of Tdap vaccine prior to the start of school.  If you would like your child to receive the vaccine at school, please complete the form that has been given to your child and return no later than February 7.  The vaccine will be given at school on February 19.  If your child has already received this vaccination after the age of seven, please send a copy of the vaccination record to the school.  If you need another form or have questions, please feel free to contact GSMS.
