School’s health office now accepting Tdap booster documentation from current 6th graders for the new 2022-23 school year
The State of Oklahoma requires 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 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.
Current 6th grade students will need to provide their school with a copy of their immunization record showing completion of the Tdap booster. Students will not be allowed to pick up their schedules unless the school has a copy on file.
A copy of the student's immunization record can be email to Nurse Fish at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 918-251-8685.
If there are any questions about the Tdap booster, please contact Nurse Fish at email@example.com.
**For the convenience of our parents BAPS is partnering with the Caring Van to offer the Tdap immunization to 6th grader students. The Caring Van will be present at Oneta Middle School on April 6 at 1 p.m. <Click here for more details.>
