ATTENTION INCOMING GRADE 6 PARENTS:
The following immunizations are now required for all students born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering Grade Six in September 2015:
One Dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) – given no earlier than their 10th birthday. Some Tdap preparations may only be given after the 11th birthday. Immunization type is dependent upon what your pediatrician stocks in his office, (ie., Boostrix/Adacel). If a Tetanus immunization, (DTP/DTaP or Td) dose has been administered in the last five years, documentation must be received by the Lincoln Roosevelt Health Office.
One Dose of Meningococcal-containing vaccine, such as the medically-preferred Meningococcal conjugate vaccine is also required. This is a preventative vaccine for meningitis.
