Tdap Booster Required for Rising 6th Graders

Virginia state law requires that all rising 6th grade students have a Tdap booster shot prior to entry into 6th grade.  Parents are advised to contact your child’s doctor to make sure your child receives this important vaccine before school starts.  The vaccine may be administered by your physician, military clinic, area urgent care centers, or the local health department.  The Fredericksburg Health Department (608 Jackson Street, 540-899-4142) has immunization clinics on Tuesdays from 8am-noon.  Documentation should be delivered to WGMS by hand, mail, or fax (540-891-5449) as soon as possible.
