PARENTS OF 6th GRADERS
An additional immunization is required by the Florida Department Health and the Department of Education for all students entering 7th grade next school year.
A Tdap booster (adult strength tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) is required before your child can begin the school year 2010-2011.
Formal documentation is mandated and you must present your child’s school with a completed Florida Certificate of Immunization form DH680 with an updated Part A signed by your child’s healthcare provider before he/she can receive a schedule or enter school on the first day of classes, August 16, 2010.
If your child has received a Td booster (tetanus, diphtheria vaccination with no pertussis) within the past 5 years, his/her healthcare provider needs to determine if he/she can receive the now required Tdap vaccine. If it cannot be given prior to the start of school, then you must submit the Florida Certificate of Immunization DH680 form with Part B completed by the healthcare provider with a valid expiration date as to when your child can receive the required updated immunization.
Please submit the blue DH680 immunization form with Part A or B completed to your child’s school as soon as possible.
Your child’s healthcare provider or the Seminole County Health Department can provide the Tdap booster.
