Immunizations Required of 7th Grade Students

Published on: 5/28/2024


Dear Parents/Guardians:

Georgia law requires that students entering seventh (7th) grade must have one (1) dose of TDaP (Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis) and one (1) dose of MCV4 (Meningitis) vaccine.

The Chatham County Health Department - 1395 Eisenhower Drive, Savannah, GA 31406 - offers immunization services Monday through Friday - telephone number is:  (912) 356-2441.  You can also make an appointment with your child's primary care physician for their immunization updates. 

If your child has a medical exemption, it can only be accepted on the current Georgia 3231 immunization form – signed by a physician.  Medical exemptions are good for one year and must be renewed annually by a physician – as needed.

If your child has a religious exemption to immunizations, you may obtain the Georgia Department of Public Health Form 2208 (Affidavit of Religious Objection to Immunization) from the school nurse.  This form - 2208 - must be notarized.

In accordance with state law, your child will not be allowed attendance unless we receive a current Georgia Form 3231 with all required immunizations.  If you have already turned in your child's Georgia 3231 immunization record, we thank you and please disregard this notice. 

Thank you for your attention to these immunization matters.
