TDAP Vaccinations


Attention Parents of Rising Seventh Graders:


South Carolina Immunization laws require a Tetanus shot/ Tdap vaccine for all students prior to entering the seventh grade (7th). If your child has not been vaccinated, please schedule an appointment with your child’s physician today. Once your child has been vaccinated, bring a copy of the updated shot record to your child’s school nurse.


• One (1) dose of Tetanus/ Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) must be administered on or after the 7th birthday for all seventh graders. It is strongly recommended that adolescents who have not yet received a dose of Tdap vaccine be immunized in advance of this requirement.
