Dear New Kent 6th Grade Families,

We know you are busily planning for the first day of school on September 4th. This is an important reminder about ensuring your child has their T/DAP booster shot prior to school starting. If your child has not had a booster shot they will be sent home until they get this updated. Please make sure that you give a copy of your child's updated immunization record to the school nurse before school starts. We want to ensure that all of our children have a great first day back. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Sincerely,

New Kent Middle School


All children entering 6th Grade are required to have a booster dose of TDAP vaccine, if at least 5 years have passed since the last dose of a tetanus containing vaccine. We have been informed by the Department of Education that there will be NO grace period for this vaccine. This means that we must have proof of students having received this vaccine before the first day of school.

Record of the immunization may be faxed to 804-966-8579 or forwarded to:
