6th Grade Immunization Requirements

Incoming 6th Grade
Immunization Requirements
for September

     The New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services requires all students entering the sixth grade to receive one booster dose of the Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and one dose of the meningococcal vaccine. Compliance is mandatory before the start of 6th grade. Your child may be excluded from school if these immunization requirements are not met. If these vaccinations have been administered, please send documentation from your physician to your child's School Health Office. If they have not, we strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment with your physician NOW to be ready for next fall. Once the immunizations have been completed, submit the documentation from your physician to your child's School Nurse.
