This is an important message for INCOMING 7th GRADERS from our school nurse.

Dear Parents of 6th grade students:
The time for your student to begin Junior High School is quickly approaching & WBJH would like for this transition to go as smoothly as possible. In order for him/her to receive their schedule during the 7th grade meet the Teacher night, they must have had all of their state required immunizations or a current exemption letter on file. 
The Brazoria County Health Department and I are working together in an effort to prevent the huge, last minute rush of students requiring immunizations for the new school year. As a result of last year’s rush, there was a shortage of these immunizations, booked MD offices, and very long lines at the clinics. 
On or after your child’s 12th birthday, the state requires that your student has proof of at least two doses of the varicella vaccine (or have had the chicken pox), a tetanus booster and the MCV vaccine before entering the 7th grade. When necessary, these immunizations can/will be administered earlier. If he/she has had these vaccines, please send a current shot record ASAP to your student’s school nurse.
It is very important that these immunizations be acquired as soon as they are due, and that you present the most current immunization record to your child’s school nurse so that they can be entered into your child’s records.
(Please make sure and bring your child’s current immunization record to your healthcare provider for review to ensure that they receive all shots that are due).
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or your student’s current school nurse.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
