Important Information for Parents of 6th grade students entering 7th grade for the 2014-2015 School Year
By law, students entering or transferring into 7th grade must receive one dose of tetanus-diphtheria–pertussis vaccine, (Tdap). Students will not be permitted to enter 7th grade without it.
Parents who wait until the summer recess to take their children for Back to School vaccine requirements will have difficulty scheduling an appointment with their medical provider for the Tdap vaccine due to limited availability and resources.
If you do not have the ability to obtain the immunizations needed for your child, please contact The Children’s Trust hotline at 211, or make an appointment with the Special Immunization Program of the Florida Department of the Health in Miami-Dade County at 786-845-0550.
Parents it is very important that your child receives this shot before the school year begins. If you have completed the immunization please bring the Blue or White (680) form to our office.
