From the Nurse
7th Grade Immunizations
The immunizations that the incoming 7th graders in Wink-Loving ISD will need are:
- Tetanus, Diptheria and acellular pertussis-(Tdap) containing vaccine: One dose of Tdap is required if at least 5 years have passed since the last dose of tetanus containing vaccine.
- Meningoccoal (MCV4) : One dose of MCV4 is required on or after the student’s 11th (If the student received the vaccine at 10 years of age, this will still satisfy the requirement.)
Please check all immunization records to see what your student may need to start school and submit documentation as soon as possible to the school nurse. You may submit documentation to the present school nurse or during the summer by fax at 432-527-3505, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to P.O. Box 637.
Acceptable documentation includes a note from the doctor’s office, an immunization card, or a billing statement with the immunizations itemized. Documentation must have a physician’s signature or clinic stamp. Month/day/year must be recorded for each immunization.
********Please understand, we do not want to disappoint you or your child by being required to send your child home for not meeting state requirements on the first day of school.***********
All state requirements may be found at www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize.
