TDAP Immunization Requirements for students entering the 7th grade
The State of Oklahoma is requiring all students entering the 7th grade to receive one Tdap booster for immunization against tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to contact their child’s healthcare provider as soon as possible to arrange for this immunization. Please do not confuse the mandated Tdap booster with other required childhood vaccinations. If the student has already received the Tdap vaccination booster, he/she will not require an additional vaccination.
Students entering the 7 grade will need to provide their school with a copy of their immunization record showing completion of the Tdap booster any time prior to schedule pick up. Students will not be allowed to pick up their schedules unless the school has a copy on file.
