Law requires all sixth graders receive vaccine

Attention parents: State law requires students entering sixth grade in public schools receive a dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis vaccine (TDaP) if it has been five years since their last dose of tetanus-containing vaccine. Any sixth grader who does not provide written documentation of receiving this vaccine will be excluded 30 days after enrolling in school. In New Hanover County, the vaccine is free to all students at the County Health Department at 2029 South 17th Street
