NOTES FROM YOUR NURSE
ATTENTION ALL 6TH GRADE STUDENTS:
Get your pertussis/whooping cough (Tdap) vaccines now so you will not be delayed in getting your schedule or attending school in the fall.
A new state law requires all students in grades 7-12 to have a current pertussis/whooping cough vaccine or booster (Tdap). Students entering 7th grade must provide the school with written proof, from the Physicians office, that they have been vaccinated. This vaccine must have been administered on or after the 7th birthday to meet the requirement in the new law.
Please check with your child's health care provider as soon as possible to make sure your child's vaccines meet the new state requirements. Turn in written vaccine proof to the Vineyard office as soon as possible. Please contact me if you have any questions, or need help finding a health care provider.
