Did you know that a change in the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts last year brought new requirements for childhood immunizations? All 7th graders are required to have updated information on file with the TMS nurses.
In order for your child to start 7th grade, here’s what is needed:
• 2 doses of MMR vaccine
• 3 doses of hepatitis B vaccine (or 2 doses if adolescent has received the Recombivax HB 2-dose adolescent schedule option)
• 2 doses of varicella vaccine or physician-certified reliable history of chickenpox disease
• 1 booster dose of Tdap (if it has been > 5 years since the last dose of DTaP, DTP, DT, or Td was given)
