Tdap Requirement

Attention: PARENTS/GUARDIANS of 6th GRADERS   
Students entering 6th grade are required by North Carolina State Law to receive a Tdap (Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis) vaccination if it’s been 5 years or more since their last dose of Td (tetanus/diphtheria toxoid). 
 
Please contact your child's medical provider to see if this vaccination is needed for your child.  The middle school must have documentation of Td within the last 5 years or the new Tdap vaccination by the 30th day of school to avoid suspension.  PLEASE SEND DOCUMENTATION TO THE SCHOOL.
 
For students attending Graham Middle School on the year round calendar, the deadline for providing documentation of vaccination is Tuesday, August 20, 2013.
 
For students attending traditional calendar schools, the deadline for providing documentation of vaccination is September 24, 2013.
