Required Immunizations for 7th Grade

Required Immunizations for 7th Grade
Dear Parent/Guardian:  
   
This information is to get you and your child ready for the 2015­2016  school year.  As part of the State of Texas vaccine requirements, all students entering the 7th grade, must receive the following vaccines:   
 
Varicella Vaccine­­​: Must have a total of two or have had the Chicken Pox Disease
 
Tetanus, Diptheria and Accelular Pertussis­containing Vaccine (Tdap):​ ­­​ Must have
a booster dose of Tdap if it has been five years since their last dose.  
 
Meningococcal Vaccine:​   Must have one dose of this vaccine.  
 
According to the State of Texas, no student will be allowed to attend school without up­to­date immunizations.  ​ Students will not be allowed to receive their class schedules for the 2015­-2016 school year until all immunization requirements are met.
 
Please note that the Texas Department of Health will not be able to provide immunizations at school this year due to a change in the law.​   These immunizations are available at your doctor’s office, the Bellville Health Department , and various pharmacies.   
 
It is not too early to get your child vaccinated for the next school year. Please do not wait until time for school to start as the vaccine supply may be low.   A note from your doctor saying they are out of one of the needed vaccines will not be accepted.  The only time a doctor’s note will be accepted is if there is a state­wide shortage of the vaccine.  The State of Texas will notify the school if this happens.   Please bring a copy of your child’s shot record to school, when they receive their vaccinations, so the school records can be updated.
