Do You Have a Student Entering 6th Grade
In the Fall?
 

All 6th grade students must have a Tdap vaccine and the date recorded before the first day of school.  The student must be 11 years old to have this vaccine.  Please obtain this vaccine once your student turns 11 and report it to us at IMS as soon as this vaccine has been received in order to ease the transition to middle school. 

* If your student is not 11 before the first day of school please contact your school nurse* 

 

If your student receives any immunizations please email the information to imsimmunizations@issaquah.wednet.edu

 Washington State allows exemption from this vaccine for medical, personal or religious reasons which are obtained and signed by your provider.
