Kids Need More Vaccines for School
 
  Tennessee schools are now requiring children entering Kindergarten to have received Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Pneumococcal, Haemophilus influenza type B, and a second Varicella¬†vaccine. These are all vaccines that are standardly given in our practice. If your child has followed our vaccine schedule they should be up-to-date. Middle school age kids now need Tdap¬†before entering 7th grade. This is also standardly offered to our patients at their 11 or 12 year well visit.
