Tdap Booster Vaccination


All 6th Grade students entering 7th grade during the 2018/2019 school year are required to provide proof of a Tdap booster vaccination.  Students that have already received this vaccination, please bring your immunization record to the health office to have your health record updated.  Students that do not get the vaccination will need to obtain it before starting school in August, 2018.  Should you have any questions, please refer them to Mrs. Hunt or Mr. Diggs in the TMS Health Office.

 

NO Tdap, NO SCHEDULE.

Flu Update


 

As of January 27, 10% of US death certificates listed FLU or pneumonia as cause of death.  Flu is expected to last till May.  CDC estimates 700,000 people or more will be hospitalized due to flu.  There are 84 kids that died of flu this flu season.  Twenty two just died at an alarming rate between February 4-10, 2018.  

On the good side, flu is still PREVENTABLE:

1. Get vaccinated.  It is not too late!  The flu vaccine lessens severity and shortens days of flu symptoms.             

2.   When sick, stay home from work or school.  Stay away from public places.

3.   Keep washing hands frequently since flu virus lives 24 hours on surfaces like phone, door knobs, tables, etc.

4.   Improve your immune system by having enough rest and sleep. Drink lots of water and take multi vitamins and vitamin C. 

WARNING.:  Flu is in the air we breathe.  We know coughing and sneezing can spread the disease due to airborne transmission. Now CDC is saying that mere breathing, an exhalation from a sick person can get you sick of the flu.

Stay healthy.
