TDAP booster requirement

All rising 7th graders must meet the TDAP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis) immunization requirement, per Virginia law.

Parents must provide adequate documentation to their child's middle school before the start of the school year, or that child's class schedule will be withheld.  Once your child has received the Tdap vaccination, please bring the documentation to your child’s school. If the student receives the vaccination after the end of the school year, please send the documentation to the middle school that your child will attend.

The Roanoke City area health department holds clinics each summer so that parents can ensure their child receives the proper immunizations.  Please see this calendar for details on clinics.
