From the Nurse
ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS: 

There are two vaccinations required by the State of Texas for 7th grade: Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and the meningococcal vaccine.  Typically students will receive these vaccines at their 11 or 12 year old check up.  If your student receives this vaccine, please email or fax a copy of their vaccination record to me.  Please don't wait until the week before school starts to get these vaccines.  Typically there will be a shortage of the vaccines, before school starts, because it is required of all 7th grade students in Texas.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you for your help!  My email is:  tamara_pierce@lovejoyisd.net and the fax # is 469-742-8401.
