For the 2016-17 school year, students entering the 7th grade will be required to provide documentation of a Tdap booster (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) vaccine. Your child might have already received this vaccine. If your child has received this vaccine, please send in a copy of your child’s updated vaccination record.
If your child still needs to receive this vaccine, you can contact your child’s healthcare provider and schedule an appointment or you can contact the Perry County Health Department at 342-5179.
Your child must have this vaccine and the documentation on file by day 14 of the 2016-17 school year or your child will be excluded from school and it will be considered an “unexcused” absence.
