Immunization – TDAP AND VZV

Immunization  – TDAP AND VZV

Hello parents of incoming seventh grade students.  This is an important message regarding the first day of school in August.

By law, students will not be permitted to attend class on the first day of seventh grade without proof of the required immunizations.  Students will need to have received one T-D-A-P booster and two chickenpox vaccines.  Pinellas County Schools are required to enforce these immunization requirements and strongly encourage you to get this completed as soon as possible.

After your child has received these vaccines, please turn in a completed certificate of immunization to the school. 

You can contact your child’s healthcare provider to request these vaccines.  If your child does not have a healthcare provider, immunizations are available at no cost at your local Department of Health location, no appointment is needed. 

If you have any questions about these vaccine requirements, you are welcome to call the School Health Services department at 588-6320 for assistance.

We hope that all students are prepared for seventh grade!  Thank you for your attention to this matter.
