District Nurse's News
Attention Parents of New Students: Your child(ren)'s REGISTRATION is NOT COMPLETE until you bring A HARD COPY of the Certificate of Immunization (COI) to the school. Uploading a copy is NOT sufficient! We do not print COI from ImmPRINT. You must get the COI from your child's doctor, clinic, or health department.
The Alabama Department of Public Health REQUIRES that ALL students 11 years and older entering the 6th grade in the fall of 2019 receive a Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis) vaccine. (The law does not apply to students who will not be 11 or 12 years old entering the 6th grade on August 7, 2019.)
REMEMBER: This vaccine is required, and your child must receive the Tdap vaccine and present and updated CERTIFICATE OF IMMUNIZATION (COI) to the nurse before August 7th or he/she will not be given a class schedule.
*We require a hard copy of the COI. We do not print COI from ImmPRINT. You must request a copy from your child's doctor, clinic, or health department.
