Parents of 6th grade students, there is a booster vaccination required by the Florida State Health Department for all students entering 7th grade in 2019.
TDaP is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). Please let the clinic know when your 6th grader receives this booster. The FCHD will have a shot clinic in April for students who still need this mandatory vaccine, permission slips will be sent home. 5th grade students are old enough to get the vaccine done early.
