7th Grade Immunization Requirements

To attend the 7th grade in Utah a student must have proof of receiving the Meningococcal vaccine and the Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis (Tdap) booster. The kindergarten Tdap does not count as the booster requirement for 7th grade. This is in addition to other immunizations which should have already been completed and on file (i.e. MMR, DTaP, Polio, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Varicella). You will not be able to attend 7th grade without the school having this information on file. Parents are asked to bring in or mail in a copy of the immunization document from the Health Department or doctor’s office as proof of required vaccinations. You may also email the immunization form to aubreyl.porter@nebo.edu.

Counselors will be available for schedule changes on August 7 and 8 from 8:00am to 3:00pm. The class change fee ($5) will begin on August 15th.
