TDaP Immunizations Required for 7th Grade Students

Summer break is a great time to get your student immunized! Vian Public Schools cannot allow students to start school without an updated shot record or a completed, state-approved exemption form on file. If your 7th grade student has not had their TDaP booster, please contact your child's physician, local clinic, or health department immediately to set up an appointment so that your child is up-to-date on immunizations and ready to start school on Thursday, August 15, 2024.

For incoming 7th grade students, parents will need to provide updated shot records or completed exemption forms to the middle school office BEFORE the first day of school on August 15th. You may email forms to Mrs. RayAnn Harris at or FAX them to 918-773-3051 or drop them by the office from 9am-2pm during the following time periods: May 28-30 and July 29th – August 14th (closed on Fridays).

All incoming 7th Graders are required to have a TDaP booster shot or provide a completed and signed Certificate of Exemption from the Oklahoma State Department of Health before being admitted to school. No exceptions will be made.

Oklahoma law and Vian school policy states that "For school enrollment, a parent or guardian shall provide one of the following: 1. Current, up-to-date immunization records; or 2. A completed and signed exemption form." Such evidence is required before the child is allowed to enter or attend Vian Public School.

Children with specific medical contraindications to any or all immunizations or whose parents have objections to immunizations based on religious teachings or personal beliefs can apply for an exemption. Lost immunization records are not grounds for an exemption to the Oklahoma Law. For questions regarding exemptions, call the Oklahoma State Department of Health at (405) 426-8580.
