McAnally Intermediate School is offering a March 25 shot clinic to all current sixth-graders to help prepare them for seventh grade. These shots are REQUIRED in order to enter seventh grade in the fall. The clinic is from 8 a.m. to noon that day. Incoming seventh-graders need the following immunizations: the second varicella (unless a student has had the chicken pox virus), Meningococcal, and TDAP booster.
During the week of March 4, immunization permission forms and a current copy of each student’s shot record will be sent home with students. The form will need to be completed and returned to McAnally. The current shot record will show the student’s current immunization status. It can be also be used for summer camps, as well as to obtain shots at a doctor’s office (if the parent chooses to not use the shot clinic). As the required seventh-grade immunizations are obtained, the immunization records will be updated in the nurse’s office, and a new copy will be given to parents. Student immunization records can be faxed to McAnally at 817-441-5177.
