Before setting foot in Fauquier public schools, kindergarteners and sixth graders must get vaccinated.
By law, all kindergartners must have at least one dose of required immunizations and all sixth-grade students are required to have a tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis booster vaccination (TDaP). Sixth-grade students in Fauquier County Public Schools will not be allowed to begin school for the 2014-2015 school year until this booster vaccination is received and proof of immunization has been presented to the school.
Vaccinations may be obtained at physician’s offices, military clinics, various pharmacies and at the Fauquier Health Department (phone 347-6400). The health department is offering two FREE immunization clinics this month prior to the first day of school on August 18:
· Friday, August 1 from 8:30-10 a.m.
· Monday, August 4 from 1-3 p.m.
