Reminder: Tdap Immunization Required For Students Entering 7th Grade

Oklahoma School Immunization laws require all in‐person and virtual students entering the seventh grade to have received one dose of Tdap vaccine. Tdap is a vaccine used to boost immunity to pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus and diphtheria. A dose of Tdap is recommended for all adolescents beginning at age 11 because protection provided by the Dtap shots they received as babies wears off after 5‐10 years. 

Tdap vaccine is available in most doctor’s offices, clinics, drug stores such as Walgreens, Walmart and CVS, and county health departments. The nearest county health department is the Tulsa Health Department at 51st St. and 129th. Hours are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday ‐ Friday. Be sure to get a copy of the completed vaccination record to take or mail to your child’s school and to keep for your records. There are three methods of turning in immunization records: 

  1. Mail to school at:
    Karen Graham,
    Health Clerk
    Union 6th/7th Grade Center
    10100 E. 61st 
    Tulsa, Oklahoma 74133
  2. Email to [email protected] or fax to (918) 357‐8180.
  3. Return in person to the Union 6th/7th Grade Center office.

A completed proof of Tdap immunization or exemption is necessary in order to receive a schedule for 7th grade. If your child is behind on other immunizations, you will also need to catch them up before receiving a schedule. For questions, please contact Karen Graham at 918-357-4326 or email here at [email protected]  Thank‐you for your help in this matter.
