Has your 7th grader received all of his/her immunizations? If not, the following immunization clinic may be of help:
WHO: Students Entering 7th Grade
WHAT: Cannon County Health Department Immunization Clinic
WHEN: July 29th, 2010 (please call 563-4243 to schedule an appointment)

WHAT TO BRING: Your child’s shot record
The Tennessee Department of Health (TDOH) has issued new immunization rules along with a new Official Certificate of Immunization that is required for students entering 7th grade. In summary:
- Children entering the 7th grade must show proof of two new immunizations:
- Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis booster (“Tdap”)
- Verification of immunity to varicella (2 doses or history of disease)
- There will now be only one official TDOH certificate of immunization that must be completed by medical providers and delivered to schools upon registration.
For more information call your local health department at 563-4243.
