Vaccine requirements for incoming sixth-grade students

Message from the Nurses Office:

New York State requires all students who will be entering 6th grade in September 2021 to receive a booster Tdap (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) vaccine. 

Proof of booster must be received prior to the start of next school year. The exceptions for Tdap are students who will be 10 years old as they enter 6th grade (they will need it when they turn 11)
