District Health Services Vaccination Update


Re: the upcoming 2017/2018 School Year

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) states that all students eleven years and older, who have had 5 years pass since their last tetanus/diptheria vaccine, are required to receive Tdap booster before the start of 6th grade.

Student’s eleven years and older are also required to receive a Meningococcal vaccine before the start of 6th grade.

Please make sure to schedule an appointment with your health care provider or contact the Arizona Department of Health Services to ensure that your student is able to attend school at the start of the school year. Please bring a copy of your student’s updated immunization record to your school’s health office.

Please direct any question to District Health Services at (520) 879-2010

 

Thank You,
