For a listing of all state-mandated immunizations required in school, please visit the Virginia Department of Health website

All 7th grade students are required to have a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) booster shot prior to the beginning of the school year. Shots may be obtained from your private doctor, local military clinics, or Portsmouth Health Department (free) at 383-8585. Be sure that you take a copy of your child’s immunization record with you. Regardless of where your child receives their shot, documentation must be taken to their school nurse as soon as possible to ensure that they may begin classes in the first day of school.
