7th Grade Vaccine

7TH GRADE Tdap VACCINE

Attention Parents/Guardians of Sixth Grade Students:

It's time to register your child for the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) vaccine. All students entering 7th grade are required to have a Tdap booster prior to admittance to the 7th grade.

The Tdap vaccine can be provided by the Baker County Department of Health to your child at school at no cost to you. If your child has health insurance, we are required to collect that information. There will be no co-pay or deductible due. Children without insurance will receive the vaccine for free. Your child's health insurance status will stay confidential.

Your child has already received a consent form. If you need a new form, please call the front office at BCMS (904.259.2226), and we will send a new form home to you. The consent forms are due March 8th.

This last school year, dozens of children did not receive their schedules at open house because they did not have this required vaccination. Please don't let that happen to your child next year! Please consider taking advantage of this free opportunity.
