Rising 6th Grade Immunizations

Georgia law requires that each child entering the sixth grade show proof that he/she has received a second dose of measles vaccine or has immunity to measles. In addition, starting with the 2001-2002 school year, children entering sixth grade must also provide documentation that they have had the chickenpox disease or the vaccine.

Most children entering the sixth grade have had two doses of measles vaccine, and many have had the chickenpox disease. If that is the case, you will need to get this documented on a new supplemental vaccine certificate, Form 3189 (rev 8/00), or a new school certificate, Form 3231, before school starts in August. Both of these forms are available through your child’s pediatrician or your local Board of Health.

This is law. As a public school we must abide by all Georgia laws. Unfortunately, if your child does not have the above-mentioned documentation, your student will be withdrawn from Mabry and will not be able to attend until such documentation is provided.

The purpose of this letter is to inform you so you have time over the spring and summer to review your child’s records with your private physician or visit the community health center in order to secure the proper documentation. As always, my intention is to avoid situations where a child is unable to attend school due to lack of vaccination.
