Certificate Of Immunizations ( Blue Cards)
5th Grade Parents/Guardians,
The Tdap is a required vaccine for students when they turn 11 years old. If your child has already turned 11 or will turn 11 this summer and you have not scheduled an appointment with your child’s physician please do so now to ensure your child receives the Tdap immunization before the 2018-2019 school year begins. You may also take your child to the Health Department (256-539-3711) for this Immunization.
I will be taking ALL 5th grade Immunization records to Sparkman Middle School on
5/25/18. After this date you will be responsible to turn in or pick up your child’s IMM-50 blue card at the front office of Sparkman Middle School. You can contact them at 256-851-4610.
Please notify the front office or myself if you know your child will not be attending SMS entering the 6th grade.
All Parent/ Guardians,
The State of Alabama School Law, Code of Alabama, Section 16-30-4, requires ALL students to have a current Alabama Certificate Of Immunization (COI), an Alabama Certificate of Religious Exemption, or an Alabama Certificate of Medical Exemption for specific vaccine-preventable.
If your child has a Certificate of Immunization (COI), previously known as a blue card, that expires before 8/1/2018 and a CURRENT immunization record is NOT turned into the office before the start of school, 8/1/18, your child WILL NOT be able to be put on a class list or obtain a schedule for the upcoming school year.
