Did you know that your 5th grader will be required to have a Tdap vaccination to enter 6th grade?

Proof of Tdap vaccination is required by the first day of 6th grade.  Please bring a copy of your child’s immunization record showing a current Tdap vaccination to 6th grade registration.  Your child can be prevented from starting school if there is no proof of a Tdap vaccination.

Where can you get this immunization?

  • Your child’s primary care physician
  • The Mesa County Health Department, 248-6900

Colorado state law requires Tdap vaccination for all 6th through 12th graders.  This is an additional requirement, even if your child was up-to-date with all vaccinations when they entered kindergarten. 

Tdap is a Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis booster.  It provides the added protection of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) to the standard Tetanus booster.
