Students entering 7th grade will need to have a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) within the past 5 years and a Meningococcal vaccine (meningitis).
All students need to be up to date by the end of the first week of school in August or they will be excluded from school per state law and AISD policy—Texas Education Code, Health and Safety Chapter, Section 38.0001.
Vaccinate in advance to avoid the last minute rush in August. Having your child up to date will also avoid them from being excluded from school on the first day of school.
