To: Parents of students entering 7th grade in August, 2019

The Tennessee Department of Health (TDOH) has issued new immunization rules and is issuing a new Official Certificate that is required for entry into school effective July 1, 2010.

The following is a list of requirements for students entering 7th grade:

 Children entering 7th grade (new requirements underlined):

  • Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis booster (“Tdap”)

 

Each child who is entering 7th grade in August 2019 will have to have a Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis booster. This information must be provided to the school before enrolling in 7th grade.

 

There will now be only one official TDOH certificate of immunization that must be filled out by medical providers for parents to deliver to schools prior to entry of their child into pre-school, pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 7th grade, or as a new student. The form is only available from a private healthcare provider or local health department. (This form was made available after April 1, 2010.)

Parents of students entering 7th grade must provide proof of the above requirement on the new form before enrolling into 7th grade.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter,
