Attention 6th Grade Parents/Guardians...Iowa legislation requires all students entering the 7th grade will need to provide proof that a Tdap immunization booster was given if born on or after September 15, 2000. Tdap contains a booster dose of tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. This will help protect your child and others from whooping cough. Documentation of the Tdap vaccine on a Certificate of Immunization will need to be provided to the school nurse prior to the first day of school unless your doctor signs a Certificate of Exemption, excluding them from receiving the vaccine. If a Tdap dose was administered to your child on or after their 10th birthday, this will meet the school requirement. Please check with your doctor or Public Health to see if your child still needs to receive this booster. Bring the Certificate of Immunization with you on registration day or give a copy to the school health office before classes resume, or it may be faxed to school at 563-552-4701. This is a state requirement and if your child does not receive the vaccine or an exemption from your doctor, he/she will be excluded from school until the vaccine has been administered. Thank you, Kim Schmitt RN BSN (563-552-4712).
