Immunizations required for 7th Grade Students

The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System would like to remind parents and guardians of 7th-grade students, that the state requires proof that your student has had a booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis vaccine (known as Tdap).

This requirement is necessary for your child to be admitted into the 7th grade. The state has not relaxed this requirement because of COVID-19. In fact, they are communicating that it is more important than ever to ensure your child is fully immunized.

The Tennessee Department of Health has issued an immunization requirement for all students entering into the 7th grade and as follows:

    • Documentation of Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis Booster (Tdap) after 10 years of age (on the appropriate DTaP/DT/Td line of the TN Certificate of Immunization). We can only accept a TN Certificate of Immunization. Pharmacy receipts and immunization cards are not acceptable documentation.

Documentation is Due by Friday, October 2.

Tennessee state law requires facilities to accept only the official Tennessee Certificate of Immunization. Proof of immunization must be on this certificate. For currently enrolled students in 7th grade, only proof of the new immunization is required on the new certificate of immunization. It is not necessary to copy the information from the previous certificate on to the new certificate. Your healthcare provider or the health department will provide you with the certificate when you take your child for his/her required immunization. School staff, including the school nurse, cannot complete or make changes to the certificate. This must be done by your healthcare provider.

Please make arrangements with your healthcare provider, the Health Department, or one of the Immunization Partners on the attached list for your child to receive this new immunization prior to the first day of the 2020-2021 school year. The Montgomery County Health Department can be reached at 931-648-5747.

It is state law that no child be permitted to attend school until proof of immunization is provided to the school. *Exemptions: Please see our policy on medical/religious exemptions for more information.*

For additional information, please visit the TN Department of Health website.

Please feel free to contact the school nurse for any questions or additional information. You may also contact the Student Health Services Department, at 931-920-7976.
