At this time of year, I am reviewing all of the sixth grade health records to make sure that they are up to date on their immunizations as required by the State of Massachusetts.
All sixth graders need one dose of Tdap, (2) doses of MMR vaccine and (2) doses of Varicella vaccine prior to entering seventh grade. Failure to present documentation of the necessary immunizations to Masconomet prior to the start of school may be cause for exclusion (Massachusetts General Law, chapter 76, S. 15 Vaccinations and Immunizations).
Thank you to those who have submitted copies of their immunization records. Any questions please call to Health Office 978-3528616 x 1261
