Immunizations

7th Grade Immunization Requirements

Georgia's immunization requirements for children attending 7th grade have been revised. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, 7th graders and new entrants into Georgia schools grades 8th through 12th, will be required to have Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and MCV (meningococcal conjugate) vaccines prior to entering school.

Parents, please plan to have your child vaccinated well in advance of the start of the school year. Seventh grade students will not receive class schedules unless they have these vaccines. If you have questions please contact your school nurse.

New 11th Grade Immunization Requirements

Georgia's immunization requirements for students entering or transferring into the eleventh grade have been revised to align with the current recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

Effective July 1, 2021, all students who are new entrants or transfers into a Georgia school in the eleventh grade, will require proof of a booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine, unless their first dose was received on or after their sixteenth birthday.

Parents, please plan to have your child vaccinated well in advance of the start of the school year. Juniors may be sent home until proof of vaccine is provided. If you have questions please contact your school nurse.
