7th Grade TDAP Requirement


South Carolina immunization law requires all students entering 7th grade to be immunized with a pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine booster called TDAP after their 7th birthday.

If your child has not had this vaccine, please contact your health care provider and make arrangements to get the vaccine.

For a DHEC Immunization clinic through our local Health Department, you can visit or call 1-855-472-3432 for an appointment.

If you have questions or concerns regarding immunizations for school, you may also contact our school nurse, Elizabeth Starling, by email or phone, 803-438-7414 ext 2882.
