Sixth Grade Immunization Project
Goal: All present sixth graders will have requested seventh grade immunizations and have documentation to HMS-7 School Nurse by May 24.
Why So Early? Each year in August there are about 150 students who do not have completed immunizations. The following is from state statute and district policy: “All students enrolling in any district school shall provide the building principal with proof of immunization of certain diseases or furnish documents to satisfy requirements.”
Why seventh grade? An additional TDAP is required at this age level.
