Any student planning to attend school in their 11th grade year, will need proof of vaccination prior to beginning their junior year of high school. Please click here for more details.
The state of Georgia requires a booster dose of MCV4 (Menactra) for any student attending school in their 11" grade school year, once they have turned 16. To attend Jackson High School or any public high school in the state of Georgia your child, will need proof of vaccination prior to beginning their junior year of high school. Because this vaccine will be REQUIRED for your child to attend the first day of school, August 3, 2021, we are providing a service to you and your child at school. We have arranged for Southside Medical Center-Butts County office, our partner for telemedicine doctor visits at school, to come to JHS in May to administer the needed vaccines. This service will help to keep your child at school and save you the hassle of taking him/her to receive the vaccine. We have found that in previous years' parents plan on taking care of it during the summer but it can easily be forgotten and their child is not allowed to start school on the first day; we do not want that to happen. We want to help you by getting this taken care of before school is out this school year.
If you would like your child to receive this vaccine at school in May, please complete the attached registration sheet and return by the below date.
