11th Birthday Immunization Letter

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The New Jersey Department of Health requires immunizations prior to entry to 6th grade.   If you have not submitted your student’s proof of immunization, please drop it off to the Samuel Mickle main office prior to the start of the school year.


The following immunizations are required:

  • Tdap booster (tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) This immunization is given no earlier than the 10th birthday.  If a Tdap booster was received less than five years ago, the student will not be required to receive another dose until 5 years have lapsed
  • Meningococcal-containing vaccine (such as the meningococcal conjugate vaccine)


These immunizations are a requirement for 6th grade entry.  Students will not be permitted to enter 6th grade without medical documentation of these immunizations.  

See below for the 11th Birthday Immunization letter.
