Immunization Requirements 2020-2021

The school nurses want to remind parents that the 2020 school immunization requirements have not been relaxed due to COVID-19, and all students must be up-to-date on vaccinations upon returning to school in August.  One change that impacts many students is that two Hepatitis A vaccinations are now required for ALL grade levels.  This particularly impacts high school students who were not required to receive Hepatitis A when they entered kindergarten.  As always, 6th graders are required to receive one MCV4 (meningococcal) and one Tdap vaccination and 12th graders are required to receive an additional MCV4 before the first day of school.  Please contact your healthcare provider soon to schedule these vaccinations as appointment times may be delayed due to the current health crisis.
