Shots for School Attention Parents/Guardians with students going into 7th & 11th Grade for the 21-22 School Year

The state of North Dakota requires that your child be current on their immunizations. 

Students entering 7th Grade for the 2021-2022 school year are required by law to receive their Tdap vaccine (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) and Meningitis vaccine by October 1st 2021 or be excluded for school. 

Students entering 11th Grade for the 2021-2022 school year are required by law to receive their 2nd Meningitis vaccine  before the start of school year.  Please make arrangements for your child to receive them before October 1st, 2021 or be excluded from school.

An exemption waiver can also be filed with the school office.  In addition to the required immunizations there are several vaccines that are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as well as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to protect your child.   Please make an appointment with your Primary Healthcare Provider or any of the resources listed below.  The spring and summer are great times to get these shots!  We look forward to helping your child stay healthy and ready to learn.
