ATTENTION~ Parents of 5th grade students:
There are 2 new immunizations required for 5th graders when they turn 11 years old, MV and Tdap---your child will not be able to continue to attend school without them. If your child is not yet 11 years old, s/he will not be able to receive them until s/he turns 11. Your pediatrician is aware of this new requirement and the free county immunization clinics also have these vaccines available. I urge you to fulfill this requirement as soon as possible Please contact me if you have any questions.
For students that require immunizations, the closest free clinic is listed below. Their nurses are experts at administering all the required vaccines. Just bring your child's immunization record with you, and make sure a parent or guardian is with the child that needs the immunization. It is absolutely free!The new Immunization clinic locations are:Roosevelt Immunization Clinic1645 E.
