MRMS January Newsletter
From Nurse Montgomery
All students are required to have two additional vaccines before entering seventh grade. The required vaccines are:
· Tdap: Also called Boostrix and Adacel, this is a booster vaccine that prevents three diseases – tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough.) The Tdap vaccine is often given at the eleven-year-old checkup.
· Menactra: Also called Menveo and MCV, this is a vaccine that prevents against several strains of meningococcal meningitis. The meningitis vaccine is recommended to be given to children who are eleven years old.
Please check with your pediatrician to see if your child has already received these required vaccines. Once your child receives the required vaccines, please send a copy of the record to Nurse Montgomery at LMontgomery@bcps.org
