The Florida Department of Health requires 7th graders to have the following immunization:
Tdap (1 dose) Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis
You must show documentation on the Tdap BEFORE your child starts 7th grade. Per State Law, failure to have your child obtain this immunization will mean they will not receive a schedule at orientation and will not be able to attend classes once school begins in the Fall.
Immunizations are available from your private medical doctor or the local health department. Get a copy your child’s complete immunization record after they have obtained the Tdap shot from the doctor.
Return the DH 680, Florida Certification of Immunization, to the school after the immunization visit.
