7th Graders Must Provide Proof of Tdap Immunication Before They Can Pick Up Schedules

Before seventh grade students can pick up schedules, they must provide completed proof of Tdap Immunization. 

Oklahoma School Immunization laws require all students entering the seventh grade to have received one dose of Tdap vaccine. Tdap is a vaccine used to boost immunity to pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus and diphtheria. A dose of Tdap is recommended for all adolescents beginning at age 11 because protection provided by the Dtap shots they received as babies wears off after 5-10 years.

Tdap vaccine is available in most doctor’s offices, clinics, drug stores such as Walgreens, Walmart and CVS, and county health departments. The nearest county health department is the Tulsa Health Department at 51st St. and 129th. Hours are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday - Friday. Be sure to get a copy of the completed vaccination record to take or mail to your child’s school and for your records. There are three methods of turning in your immunization records:

1.    Mail to school at:
Debbie Furgerson, RN 10100 E. 61st
Tulsa, Oklahoma 74133

2.    Email to [email protected] or fax to 918-357-8180.

3.    A yellow box will be placed at the food pickup site at the front of the Union 6th/7th Grade Center from 9:30 a.m. – 11:45 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays. Immunization records can be placed in the box to be given to the nurse.

A completed proof of Tdap immunization is necessary in order to get your schedule for 7th grade. If you are behind on other immunizations you will need to catch them up before getting your schedule. Thank- you for your help in this matter!

Las leyes de inmunización escolar de Oklahoma requieren que todos los estudiantes que ingresan al séptimo grado hayan recibido una dosis de la vacuna Tdap. La vacuna Tdap es una vacuna utilizada para aumentar la inmunidad contra la tos ferina (whooping cough), el tétanos y la difteria. Se recomienda una dosis de Tdap para todos los adolescentes a partir de los 11 años porque la protección proporcionada por las vacunas Dtap que recibieron cuando son bebés desaparece después de 5-10 años. La vacuna Tdap está disponible en la mayoría de los consultorios médicos, clínicas, farmacias como Walgreens, Walmart y CVS, y en los departamentos de salud del condado. El departamento de salud del condado más cercano es el Departamento de Salud de Tulsa en 51st St. y 129th. El horario es de 8 a.m. a 4 p.m., de lunes a viernes. Asegúrese de obtener una copia del registro de vacunación completado para llevar o enviar por correo a la escuela de su hijo y para sus registros. Existen tres métodos para entregar sus registros de vacunación: 1. Correo a la escuela en: Debbie Furgerson, RN 10100 E. 61st Tulsa, Oklahoma 74133  2. Envíe un correo electrónico a furgerson.debbie@unionps.org o envíe un fax al (918) 357-8180. 3. Se colocará una caja amarilla en el sitio de recolección de alimentos al frente del Centro de 6°/ 7° grados de Union de 9:30 a.m. a 11:45 p.m., de lunes a jueves. Los registros de vacunación se pueden colocar en la caja para entregar a la enfermera. Una prueba completa de la vacuna Tdap es necesaria para obtener su horario para el 7º grado. Si está retrasado con otras vacunas, deberá ponerse al día antes de obtener su horario. ¡Gracias por tu ayuda en este asunto!
