State law requires that all sixth-grade students have a Tdap shot. Rising sixth-grade students will not be allowed to attend middle school next year if they have not received a booster dose of Tdap vaccine, a vaccination that helps prevent tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.
The Chesterfield County Health Department will be providing Tdap vaccinations to fifth-grade students at your school. Please find your schools clinic schedule here: Tdap Clinic Schedule. Please look for paperwork that comes home this week. The paperwork also is available on the school division’s website, mychesterfieldschools.com.
If you would like for your child to receive the booster shot at school, please complete/sign the consent form and return it to the school by March 6. If you have questions, please call 748-1633.
