Attention Parents of 5th Graders: Immunization Requirements for Entering 6th Grade

Please begin gathering your child’s updated immunization records or talking with your child’s health care provider about receiving the following vaccines:

  • meningitis vaccine (known as MCV4, Menactra, or Menveo)
  • tetanus vaccine that includes protection against pertussis or “whooping cough” (known as Tdap, Adacel, or Boostrix)
  • 2 doses of Hepatitis A (6 months apart)
  • 2 doses of HPV recommended (known as Gardasil or Cervarix)

Even though your child may have already received these vaccines, the school may not know about it unless you bring a copy of your child’s immunization record to the school. The school will need proof of your child receiving these vaccinations before or on the first day of 6th grade. Your child may be suspended if the appropriate records are not received. You may bring the necessary documentation to school as soon as the immunizations are received during the remainder of this school year or during registration. If you have any questions about these vaccine requirements, please contact your school’s health aide or school nurse.  Robyn Fox RN/Angie Busick Health Aide  812-542-3209
