TDAP Reminder

Just a reminder that per the Code of Virginia 32.1-46.A.4, all students are required to receive the Tdap booster before entering the 7th grade. Regardless of what our school schedule will look like for the 2020-21 school year, all 7th graders registered in SCPS are required to show proof of receiving this immunization or have documentation on file as to why it is medically necessary to refrain from receiving it. The old Tdap forms are no longer being used, so simply have your physician provide a print-out of your student’s immunizations and request that they have the following information on it:

  • student’s name and date of birth
  • date immunization was received
  • practice name, address, and phone number
  • printed name and signature of MD, NP, or RN 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school nurse through email at rnewton@spotsylvania.k12.va.us
