    Dear Parent/Guardian:

     

                This letter is to remind you that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has new immunization requirements which you were made aware of several times during the last school year. Beginning the 2011-2012 school year, all students in Grades K-12 are required to have a second dose of chicken pox vaccine (Varicella or Varivax), or proof of having had the disease.

     

                All students entering seventh grade are required to have a dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Adacel or Tdap) and a dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menactra or MCV).

     

                Your child will need to complete his/her immunization requirements by August 1, 2011. If your child does not meet the requirements by this date, the state requires that he/she be excluded from school until proof of immunization is provided.

     

                You may either mail or bring the written proof to the school building which your child attends. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school nurse. You will  not receive further notification on this matter.

     

                If your child does not have health insurance, please contact the Pennsylvania Department of Health for information on obtaining these immunizations. The number is 570-325-6106. These immunizations will not be available at the schools.
