Dear Parent/Guardian of incoming 6th graders,

One Tdap vaccine, if student is 11 years old. (Required for school attendance!)
Please complete the bottom portion of this form with the necessary information and then return this
form to your child’s school as soon as possible. Or, if these vaccines are obtained over the summer,
take this form to their middle school. Please call the middle school for their summer hours.
For those students who still need to get their vaccines, please contact your child’s licensed health care
provider or call the following for FREE/LOW COST immunizations:

Please take your child’s immunization records with you and be sure to have your child immunized as
soon as possible to avoid the rush (and possible vaccine shortages) in the summer. It is very helpful to
get the information to your child’s school as soon as possible.
Thank you!
