Tdap Requirement for Students Entering 7th GradePrior to beginning 7th grade at MVMS next year, your student is required by law to have a whooping cough booster (Tdap vaccine). Students who do not have proof of the booster on file prior to the start of school in August of 2016 will not receive a class schedule. If your child has not had a Tdap vaccine, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible with your doctor and submit documentation to the MVMS school office. Boosters may be available at local pharmacies, who can bill your medical insurance. If your child has already had a Tdap vaccine, please provide a copy of the record to the MVMS school office as soon as possible.
