Required Immunizations for 7th grade students

Hutchinson Public and Parochial Schools Health Services

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Minnesota Immunization Law requires that by 7th grade, children receive additional immunizations for attendance in school. The required additional immunizations are listed below.

• Tdap
• Meningococcal

Immunizations that should have been completed prior to entering kindergarten are listed below.

• DTaP (5)
• Polio (4)
• Varicella (2)
• Hepatitis B (3)
• MMR (2)

If your child needs immunizations, they can be obtained by your primary health care provider, local clinic, or McLeod County Public Health. In September, Hutchinson Middle School 7th grade students will not be allowed to receive their schedules without the required immunizations, and will not be allowed to attend school. No student is required to have an immunization which is contrary to the conscientiously held beliefs of his/her parent or guardian. To receive this exemption, a parent or guardian must complete, sign and have notarized a conscientious exemption form. If you need a copy of this form, please contact me.

If you have already updated your child’s immunizations, thank you. Please provide the school with an updated immunization record if you have not already done so. If you have already completed this, please disregard this notice. If you have any questions, please contact me at 320-587-4470 ext. 3046.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Antonia Barrick, RN, BSN
