Rising 7th Graders

OCPS Parents of Rising 7th Grade Students,

The state of Florida requires that all students entering 7th grade must have the Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis immunization also known as the Tdap immunization. Your child MUST have this immunization in order to start the 7th grade. 

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering a special session for 7th grade students to receive their required Tdap vaccine at no charge starting May 18. To schedule an appointment please call 407.723.5004 and press 2. For information you can visit orange.floridahealth.gov

Your child’s immunization will be documented on the updated form you will need to submit to your child’s school before they can attend class for the 2020-21 school year. This is also an excellent opportunity to have your child’s immunization records reviewed by a health care provider to ensure your child’s vaccines are up-to-date. 

Please email a copy of your child’s immunization record (form DH 680) to the school registrar at [email protected]

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Bressler at the email above.

Thank you for your support.
