NOTICE TO ALL PARENTS OF 7TH GRADE STUDENTS
MS State Department of Health will require all 7th grade students to have a Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) before entry in the 2012-2013 school year. Normally there is an administration fee for this vaccine, but during the National Infant Immunization Week on April 23-27, 2012, District VII MS State Health Department clinics will not charge an administration fee for 2 months thru 18 years of age.
District VII includes Adams, Amite, Franklin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lincoln, Pike, Walthall, and Wilkinson counties. Additional recommended vaccinations for preteens include those against meningococcal disease, human papillomavirus, and a second dose of varicella vaccine for those who have not received one at an earlier age. For more information on required vaccinations for school entry and recommended vaccinations for all ages, visit the MSDH website at http://www.HealthyMS.com or call at 1-866-459-4948. All 7th grade students will need an updated Form 121 showing this required vaccination on registering for the 2012-2013 school year.
