Parents of 6th Graders Take Note
All children entering 7th grade in August 2015 must have received a vaccination known as Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) as well as a meningococcal meningitis vaccination. Call you health care provider to discuss if your child has had these vaccines, or schedule an appointment for your child to receive a Tdap and meningococcal vaccination. Provide a copy of your child's updated immunization record to the health room at school as soon as possible. Your 7th grader will not be allowed in school without these vaccinations next fall. Students that are enrolled in Medicaid (MA, MCHP, CFK), or do not have private health insurance or are under-insured (have health insurance that does not cover vaccines) can go to the Montgomery County Immunization clinics (see this schedule). You must have a copy of your child's immunization record to receive vaccines at the clinic. In addition, there will be a clinic on the last day of
school, Monday June 15 at 1 PM at GMS for current 6th graders who have not received
their Tdap and meningococcal vaccines.
There is no charge for the vaccines but a parent must accompany his/her
child and sign a consent form. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the health room at 301-840-4565.
Please support the NJHS.
