Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap vaccine required for all incoming 6th graders

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services establishes the immunization requirements for students attending 6th grade.  Children  born on or after January 1, 1997 and enrolled in grade 6 beginning September 2008, are required to have a Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap vaccine (given no earlier than the 10th birthday).


Please check your child’s vaccination status.  If you have a physician documented immunization record for either of these vaccines, please forward it to the Belhaven school nurse.    Please note:  if we do not receive this immunization documentation before the first day of school, September 5, 2019, your child will be denied entrance to school until these requirements are met.  If your child’s eleventh birthday is after September 5, you will need to provide verification of a scheduled appointment with your physician.

If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse, Ms Forshaw, at 926-6700.
