Seventh Grade Immunization Requirements
The Georgia Department of Public Health has communicated that there will be additional immunization requirements for students beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. All incoming seventh grade students will now need to provide proof of a whooping cough booster and a meningococcal shot unless the child has a medical exemption on file. The Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis shot) and MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate vaccine) will help protect students against the ongoing threat of whooping cough and meningitis.
Parents of students without health insurance coverage can contact the local health department to find out about accessing low or no cost vaccines. For additional information, parents may visit http://dph.georiga.gov/vaccines-children
