    Meningococcal Vaccine & Tdap - Required for all incoming sixth graders
    Children born on or after January 1, 1997 and enrolled in Grade 6 beginning September 2008 are required to have a Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap vaccine (given no earlier than the 10th birthday). 
     
    Please check your child’s vaccination status. If you have a physician documented immunization record for either of these vaccines, please forward it to the Reading-Fleming Intermediate School health office. If your child does not have these vaccinations, we recommend you schedule an appointment in fifth grade, after their 10th birthday to ensure your sixth grade child is immunized before school opens in September.
     
    Please note:  if we do not have this immunization documentation prior to the start of your child's sixth grade school year, your child will be denied entrance to school until these requirements are met.
