Immunization requirements for 7th grade in Virginia

To start the 7th grade in Virginia, students must have the following immunizations: Tdap, Meningococcal, HPV, and Hepatitis A. The Meningococcal, HPV, and Hepatitis A immunizations became required immunizations effective July 1, 2021.

You can submit documentation of your student’s vaccination by:

  • Dropping your student’s immunization record off at Elko Middle School, or
  • By having your doctor fax your student’s immunization record to (804) 328-3942.

Students who are missing immunizations will not be allowed to pick up their schedule at Open House night and cannot attend school until we have received proof of vaccination.
