• Meningococcal vaccine – one dose for entry into the 7th grade
The state of Texas requires current vaccines of all students so they can attend school during school year. Please bring a copy of the shot record to your school nurse once your child has received his/her immunizations.
A current immunization record is due to the school nurse before August 1st in order for students to receive their 7th grade schedules at the beginning of the school year.
