Dear Parent/Guardian:
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of immunization requirements that will
impact rising 7th grade students. Students entering 7th grade are required to have
one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of
meningococcal conjugate vaccine for individuals who have not already received
those vaccines.
*Tdap Booster
*Meningococcal (MCV4, Menactra)
Please contact your health care provider or local health department if your child
needs these vaccines. For additional information on immunization requirements
please visit The Department of State Health Services website at
www.ImmunizeTexas.com
All immunizations should be completed by the first day of school. However, you
will have 30 calendar days from the first day of school to provide the required
up-to-date immunization record for your child. If, at the end of the 30-day period,
a student has not received a subsequent dose of vaccine, the student is not in
compliance and the school shall exclude the student from school attendance until
the required dose is administered. Please contact the school for any questions or
concerns.
Sincerely,
HSD Health Aide
