Attention future 7th Grade Parents: 

 
If your student will be in 7th grade for the 2017-2018 school year...

The Texas State Health Services Department of Communicable Diseases has immunization requirements specific to students entering the 7th grade.   The requirements are as follows:

           

Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, acellular Pertussis):  Required if the student has not had a vaccine containing tetanus (DPT, Td, Dtap, Tdap) in the past five (5) years.

 

Meningococcal - MCV4 (Meningitis):  One dose of Quadrivalent vaccine is required after the 11th birthday, for entry into the 7th grade.

 

Please make arrangements to have these requirements met.  Please turn proof of immunization in to your school nurse on or before start of school year in August 2017.  

 

Please note if the deficiency is not corrected by Schedule Pick up for the 2017-2018 School year, your student will not be allowed to pick up their schedule or begin class until the deficiency is corrected. Often, these shots have already been given, but the student record has not been updated at school.  Please update your student’s health record frequently.  If you have any questions, please contact your current campus nurse.

 

 YOUR STUDENT CANNOT PICK UP 7TH GRADE SCHEDULE UNTIL REQUIREMENT MET. 

Shot records can be dropped off at the clinic or emailed to karenlandreneau@tomballisd.net
