Students will be required to have one booster dose of tetanus/diptheris/pertussis vaccine (TDaP) if at least 5 years have passed since the last dose of tetanus vaccine.  If 5 years have not elapsed, then this dose will become due as soon as the 5 year interval passes.
2. Meningococcal
Students are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine by the seventh grade.
