Immunizations

All students born on or after January 1, 2002 and entering or transferring into 7th grade need proof of an adolescent pertussis (whooping cough) booster immunization (called “Tdap”) and an adolescent meningococcal (meningitis) vaccination.
 
Proof of Tdap immunization and meningitis vaccination must be documented on the Georgia immunization certificate (Form 3231).
Effective July 1, 2021, children 16 years of age and older, who are entering the 11th grade (including new entrants), must have received one booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4), unless their initial dose was administered on or after their 16th birthday.
