Attention Parents/Guardians of Fifth Grade Students
As of September 2008, students born on or after January 1,1997 who are enrolled in grade 6, or transferring into a New Jersey school from another state or country, are required to receive a booster dose of the diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine, as well as one dose of Meningococcal vaccine. These two vaccines are in addition to other vaccinations required by the New Jersey Department of Health for attendance in public school.
Please check with your family physician to ensure the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines are given by September, 2014. A hard copy of the immunization record must be signed, stamped, or initialed by your child's physician and sent to the school nurse before September, 2014. Please be advised, your child could be excluded from returning to school if these immunizations are not completed by the start of their 6th grade school year.
Please contact Lisa Davis, RN, at the Walter Hill School, at (856) 241-1552, ext. 2213 if you have questions or concerns regarding this matter.
