New Immunizations for 7th Grade Students

New Immunizations for 7th Grade Students
Immunization Requirements

New Immunization Requirements for Rising Seventh Graders beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.

If your student will be entering their 7th grade year in the fall of 2021, they will be required to have received 1 dose of Tdap (tetanus booster) and 1 dose of the Meningococcal Conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). It is strongly recommended that your student will have received 2 doses of the HPV vaccination, but it is not required for school attendance. Documentation that your 7th grade student has received their vaccinations must be received by New Kent Middle School prior to the start of the 2021-2022 school year. Please make an appointment with your child’s pediatrician to get this scheduled early in the summer. There will be no conditional enrollment allowed for those students who have not provided proof of vaccination.
