Student Services - Immunizations
Effective July 1, 2014 children born on or after January 1, 2002 who are entering or transferring into 7th grade and for new entrants into a Georgia school, grades 8th through 12th, must have received one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate) vaccine. Proof of both vaccinations must be documented on the Georgia Immunization Certificate (Form 3231).
"New Entrant" means any child entering any school in Georgia for the first time or entering after having been absent from a Georgia school for more than twelve months or one school year.
Parents, please plan ahead to have your child vaccinated before the school year begins. Your child will not be allowed to attend school until a current immunization form is on file with the school.
If you have any questions regarding the new immunization requirements or the immunization certificate (Form 3231), pleases contact your current health care provider or local health department.
