TDAP Immunization Required for All 7th Grade Students

Reminder - Immunization requirements for all students:

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) reminds school divisions that immunization requirements have not been waived during the pandemic and that they apply to all students admitted, whether learning is virtual, hybrid, or in-person. As provided in the VDOE Superintendent's Memo 001-21 (Word), the Code of Virginia § 22.1-271.2 and § 32.1-46 identify the type and schedule of immunizations required prior to school admission. The 90-day conditional admission permitted for students to complete an immunization series has or will end soon. Returning students who are conditionally admitted must show documentation of immunization or have a medical or religious exemption to comply with enrollment requirements set forth by Virginia law. 

All seventh grade students should have a TDAP on file at their school. Please make sure your student is up to date with all required vaccines to prevent exclusion from school.  Consult with your child's school nurse if you have questions:
