Vaccination Requirements for 7th Grade Students

The State of Florida mandates that all incoming 7th grade students will need to submit proof of Tdap (Tetanus – diptheria - acellular pertussis) vaccination by the start of school.

This year, Tdap vaccination will be available free-of-charge at three Pasco County middle schools – Gulf Middle, John Long Middle, and River Ridge Middle - during secondary back-to-school orientation on August 10, 2010. Representatives from the Pasco County Health Department will be on campus at these locations during registration hours to provide the necessary immunization for any student accompanied by parent or guardian.

If you have any questions about this program, please call the Pasco County Health Department at 727-861-5260, ext. 268 or 224 or you may contact the District’s School Health Services at 727-774-2360 or 813-794-2360. We hope that many parents will take advantage of this convenient opportunity to obtain required back-to-school immunizations for their middle school child.
