Parents are reminded that students entering sixth grade in Prince William County Public Schools this fall must present proof that they have had a tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) booster shot within the past five years. By state law, without proof of this immunization, children will not be able to enroll in school for the 2016-17 school year. PLEASE KNOW THAT STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND SCHOOL UNTIL THIS IS DONE.
IF YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE RECEIVING THE VACCINE UNTIL THEY TURN 11 YEARS OLD, WE MUST HAVE A SIGNED NOTE FROM THE DOCTOR INDICATING THAT THEY ARE EXEMPT UNTIL AGE 11.
Shots may be obtained from a doctor, military clinic, or the Prince William County Health Department. Documentation should be turned in to the front office.
The Prince William County Health Department may be reached at the following locations and telephone numbers: 9301 Lee Avenue, Manassas, VA 20110, 703.792.6301, and 4001 Prince William Parkway, Ste. 101, Woodbridge, VA 22191, 703.792.7300.
