Important information from the nurse:
One dose of TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria, and acelluar perussis, adolescent and adult formulation) or TD (tetanus, and diphtheria, adult) vaccine was required prior to entry into Seventh grade. This dose is intended to be administered as booster dose for those students who have completed the required doses of the initial series of the Dtap/DT/Td vaccine. If your child already meets this requirement, please send the date and record in as soon as possible. This booster must be given by the first day of seventh grade or your child could be excluded from school. Please check with your physician or the local health department (740- 852-3065) to verify your child’s immunization status or to schedule an appointment for the booster. Thank you so much for your cooperation. Any questions or concerns may be addressed to me the District Nurse, firstname.lastname@example.org
