At the beginning of 7th grade you will have to show proof you have received a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) booster and 2 varicella (chicken pox) vaccines at any school in the State of Tennessee. They must be on the proper Tennessee Certificate of Immunization form (you can get from your doctor or at the health department). SEE ATTACHMENT
You can get the vaccine at the doctor, the health department, walk in clinic or pharmacy. If they do not put it on the proper form take the receipt to the health dept and they will transfer the information (without an appointment).
If you have already gotten them please submit them by fax at 615-904-3861, have your child bring them to the nurse or their homeroom teacher.
If you have an appointment sometime this year talk to your doctor about this and submit it when completed.
THIS IS MANDATORY. IT IS STATE LAW.
Thank You, Nurse Christi Reger
