7TH GRADE IMMUNIZATIONS REQUIRED BY STATE

DSHSLOGO

 

The State of Texas requires all students entering the seventh grade to receive the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines before the first day of the 2016–17 school year (Monday, Aug. 22, 2016).

 

Please check your child’s immunization record to see whether he/she will need these vaccines before the start of school. If you are unsure, please contact your physician as soon as possible. If your child already received these vaccines, a copy of your child’s shot records should be provided to the school nurse/campus office personnel between Aug. 9 and Aug. 19.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Physician offices and public health departments are very busy during the summer with physicals and vaccination appointments. Schedule your appointment as soon as possible to ensure your child will receive these required vaccines before Aug. 22.
