NTMS Vaccines, Medicine Forms and Sport Physicals

Parents, make your students’ health provider appointments for next school year NOW as clinics are booked months in advance! Some clinics have begun charging a fee to complete paperwork outside an appointment. Click on the links below to access more information and forms:

· Vaccinations – Sign up for MyIRMobile (My Immunization Record) to see if your student needs any school required immunizations and to access vaccination records.

· Medication authorization paperwork for medicine taken at school. A new form is required each school year. We also accept medication authorization forms from your child’s provider.

· Sports physicals if your student will play sports (complete every two years).

6th Grade Families: Tdap Vaccination is Required for 7th Grade Attendance!

*MyIR link below corrected for easier printing of immunization records

Dear 6th grade families:

-Per Washington State law, all students attending 7th grade must have one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine. Tdap vaccine must be given at or after age 10 to be accepted for school entry.

-Your child’s health care provider can print proof of vaccination for you, or you can print it from MyIR, which is a free Department of Health online tool that allows families to view and print their official immunization records themselves. Go to MyIR to register for access to your family’s records.

-Please email this proof of vaccination to Kristin Liedtke, NTMS Health Tech, at kliedtke@dieringer.wednet.edu, or bring it to school during open office hours.

-Appointments for vaccines can be made at one of the resources listed here. Make appointments early, as vaccine appointments may be full in late August and in September! Other recommended vaccines may be offered by your provider.

*If your student has a Certificate of Exemption on file for the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine, this is still valid.

Thank you,

Terry Woodall, BSN, RN

District Nurse
