6th Grade Parents - Health

Parents,

You will soon be receiving letters through the US mail that specify which immunizations, if any, your child will need in order to start school next fall.  Look at what shots are needed and, if possible, make an appointment to get them now.  Make sure you forward a copy of the document from the clinic to the school.  If you wish to conscientiously object to any immunization, that form can be found on the Health Services website under Departments on the main district webpage.   The conscientious objection form needs to be notarized by a notary public and returned to school.  If inadequate insurance is a problem for you, contact Karen Ward, the school nurse, at 612-668-3650 or Karen.ward@mpls.k12.mn.us for information on where to get low cost immunizations.

Minnesota state law requires that all students beginning 7th grade have documentation of the following immunizations:

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis (DTaP/Td/Tdap)—minimum of 3 shots plus 1 given after age 11 (unless 1 was given after age 7)
  • Polio—minimum of 3 shots
  • Hepatitis B—3 shots
  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR)—2 shots
  • Meningococcal—1 shot
  • Varicella—2 shots OR evidence of having had chicken pox      
  • If the chicken pox occurred before 2010, the parent/guardian needs to provide the month and year of the disease and a signature
  • If the chicken pox occurred after 2010, a health care provider signature is required 

Thank you.
