Sixth Grade Immunization Requirements

The South Dakota Department of Health requires all incoming 6th grade students to be vaccinated with one dose of Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis vaccine, also known as Tdap, and one dose of meningococcal vaccine, also known as MCV4. Both of these vaccines should be received on or after the 11th birthday. This requirement will be deferred for students that have not yet reached their 11th birthday. On the 11th birthday the requirement would apply.
