Attention Incoming 7th Graders: A 2nd dose of Varicella is required to attend 7th grade

Attention Incoming 7th Graders:  A 2nd dose of Varicella is required to attend 7th grade

The state of California has implemented another new law/requirement for students going into 7th grade.  Along with the TDAP vaccine (which is a fairly new requirement) and all up to date vaccines, a 2nd dose of Varicella Vaccine (chicken pox) is now required for all students entering the 7th grade.  So we will be needing both the TDAP and the 2nd Varicella from each student.  Proof in the form of documentation from a doctors office with the date it was given and a stamp or signature from the doctor is required.  Also, any students on a waiver MUST start their immunizations and be current on them.  Waivers are no longer allowed (unless it is a medical waiver in which case there are very strict regulations on this) All immunizations are due into the Health office before June 1, 2019 in order to have time to clear the student and get their 7th grade schedule ready.  If you have any questions please contact the health office at 310-533-4790 ext. 8983.
