Please bring in immunization record to the front office. (Summer Hours:  Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm).

The Florida Department of Health requires all incoming 7th graders to have the following immunization:

• Tdap (1 dose) Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis

Documentation of the Tdap vaccine is required BEFORE your child starts 7th grade (must be within 5 years). Your child will not be able to attend classes until this information has been provided to the school (on or before first day of school: August 10, 2022). Your child may not be able to attend school unless we have record of Tdap immunization on the Department of Health 680 form. Current 6th graders should already have received the following immunizations:

• MMR (2 doses)

• Polio (4 doses)

• DTP/DTaP (5 doses)

• Hepatitis B Series

• Varicella vaccine (2 doses) or date of disease

You may want to take your child’s complete immunization record with you when you go to obtain the vaccine. Please return the completed DH 680, Florida Certification of Immunization, to the school after your visit and/or upload with school registration, so this information can be added to the electronic database. Immunizations are available from your private physician or the local health department at the following locations:
